The government in Jamaica has taken steps to make it easier for people who want to get into greenhouse agriculture:
In a move to boost agricultural production, Finance Minister Audley Shaw has announced the Government’s willingness to grant waivers to persons who want to set up greenhouses.
“All the greenhouse material that’s wanted in Jamaica, I’ll sign waivers for it,” Shaw told a Gleaner Editors’ Forum at the offices of the Christiana Potato Growers Co-operative Association in Christiana, Manchester, on Friday.
“I signed several last week. (I will sign waivers for) any greenhouse material needed to be imported, duty free,” Shaw declared.
The Jamaica Greenhouse Growers Association (JGGA) has applauded the Government’s decision to reactivate the waiver system that will allow for duty-free importation of construction material for greenhouses.
