The World Trade Organisation (WTO), together with European Union (EU) and Caribbean and the Pacific (ACP) will this week host a two-day workshop in Harare aimed at improving Zimbabwe’s economic performance. In a joint statement, the organisations yesterday said the two-day workshop would provide an overview of its Technical Barriers to Trade programme (TBT) agreement to enable Zimbabwean companies to export products and services and to ensure producers meet demands of the target markets in terms of quality, safety, reliability, environmental compatibility and hygiene.

Agriculture Minister Roger Clarke has underscored the importance of the sugar industry to Jamaica’s economy, particularly in the context of the administration’s efforts to restructure the country’s economy. Speaking at the official opening of the Toll Gate sports complex in Clarendon on Thursday (January 9) Clarke noted that the sector recorded an estimated US$109.7 million in combined earnings and savings during the 2012/13 sugar crop year. The agriculture minister said that the sector continues to be the largest employer in the agricultural industry, accounting for approximately 18 per cent of current jobs. “As such, sugar is still the largest wage earner and foreign exchange earner in the agricultural sector. The (sector’s) performance can (however) be improved if we step up production,” Clarke argued.
