Small Bahamian producers and livestock developers must have secure access to regional and international markets, the Minister of Agriculture said yesterday, adding that “connecting buyers to sellers” was central to the the Bahamas’ Agriculture Policy Programme (APP). V Alfred Gray, speaking with Tribune Business at its launch, said the programme would be divided into three components. “One of the components is to ensure that whatever the producers are involved in is done on a technological research basis, and that will be done together with the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), which is leading leading the charge of connecting growers to buyers,” Mr Gray said. 

“The core of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) is to improve the lives of people.” These were the words of Renwick Rose, chair of the CARIFORUM delegation at the inaugural meeting of the EU CARIFORUM Consultative Committee. This Consultative Committee, which is made up of civil society organisations, is tasked with fostering dialogue between the two regions and monitoring implementation of the EU-Cariforum EPA in a way that not only improves trade but also has a positive impact on the Caribbean region socially, economically and environmentally. The CARIFORUM-EU Consultative Committee held its first meeting on 13 and 14 November 2014. These two days of discussions culminated in the adoption of a declaration that was presented to the EPA Trade and Development Committee.

The centre, which is a subsidiary of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) received monetary support amounting to  5million Euros from the European Union (EU) and World Bank. Speaking at the ceremony to mark the presentation of the grants to the seven grantees, the first of its kind to be launched by CCORDESA, the EU Ambassador to Botswana and SADC Alexander Baum noted that the awards ceremony was of particular importance. He said it demonstrated the SADC region’s continuing efforts to create a conducive environment to support agricultural research and development under the stewardship of CCARDESA. Baum further said agriculture was the leading economic sector in most SADC countries as it represents 17% of the region’s Gross Domestic Products (GDP).
