Caricom Secretariat and IICA move to strengthen cooperation

Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Ambassador Irwin LaRocque welcomed the Director General of the Inter-American Institute of for Co-operation on Agriculture (IICA) Dr Victor Villalobos as his first visitor from an institution since assuming office on 15 August. […]

Director-General Villalobos said one of the main reasons for his visit was to express IICA’s interest to continue working with the Secretariat as he was convinced that nothing could be achieved in the development of the agriculture sector without the willingness of all parties to work together. “No single institution can develop agriculture on its own. There must be complementarity going forward,” the Director General said.

He assured the Secretary-General that he could count on IICA as they discussed projects and proposals some of which were already underway in the Community, including Women and Youth in Agriculture. He also expressed appreciation in the confidence placed in IICA for the implementation of two projects funded by the European Union (EU) under the 10th EDF totalling 20 million euros and which were due to start early in 2012. These are an Intra-ACP Agriculture Policy Programme amounting to 8.5 mn euros) and a Sanitary and Phyto-Sanitary (SPS) Programme (11.6 mn euros).
