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.

A quite amazing event took place in Kenya's capital, Nairobi, on August 29 and 30. Two hundred representatives of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) from China and 19 African countries held a China-Africa Peoples' Forum. […] Of much older vintage is the relationship between African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries and the European Union (EU). That formal relationship by treaty is 37 years old. But, the EU, which has a very vibrant civil society with which it consults regularly, has never organised a Peoples Forum of EU and ACP countries.
