Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has attended the Agri-Investment Forum and Expo II in Port of Spain, Trinidad. It ended yesterday. The event was convened under the theme “Transforming Agriculture through Innovation and Investment” and sought to build on the discussions, initiatives, and outcomes from the first Agri-Investment Forum and Expo held in May 2022 in Guyana. Prime Minister Pierre, along with other CARICOM Heads of Government recently renewed their commitment to develop and invest in agriculture as a means of realizing the goal of reducing the Member States’ Food Import Bill by 25% by 2025. The Forum facilitated discussions on achieving the region’s goals whilst combating the myriad of global challenges including Food Insecurity, Rising Food Prices, Inadequate Transportation, Trade Barriers, and the Role of Women and Youth in Agriculture.
