St Vincent to benefit from EU funds

The St Vincent and the Grenadines government says it will use the EC$34 million being made available to the island by the European Union for continued development of the agricultural sector.
Agriculture Minister Saboto Caesar in a message to farmers and other stakeholders said that the funds are being provided under the Banana Accompanying Measures (BAM) that is supporting African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries adjust to new global trade realities.“We have continued the stabilisation of the banana industry through Operations Cutback, Operations Flag back and control of the Black Stigatoka disease.”
He said that while there may have been several setbacks, “my request is that we look forward towards 2013 and beyond with optimism since the $34 million under the Banana Accompanying Measures will become available to start assisting crops and livestock farmers, fishermen and women of St Vincent and the Grenadines, agro processors, marketers and farming institutions and organisations.”
