Barbados is the host country for Caribbean Week of Agriculture 2018, which starts today (October 8):
During the week of October 8 to 12, 2018, the Government of Barbados will be hosting the fifteenth (15th) Caribbean Week of Agriculture (CWA) under the theme: “Strengthening Agriculture for a Healthier Future in the Region”.
Held annually in October, this regional event provides a forum for Ministers of Agriculture, planners, regional organisations and other key agricultural stakeholders in the public and private sectors of the Region, to meet to discuss major issues affecting the agricultural sector in the region. The major objective is to derive solutions targeted at the transformation and repositioning of agriculture in the region, as well as at improving its contribution to supporting the economic, social and environmental stability of CARICOM Member States.
