Agriculture ‘for creating jobs’

Social Share

The agriculture sector should be used as a catalyst to create jobs and drive economic development.
That is the view of Acting Chief Agricultural Officer Ralph Farnum.
He was speaking Wednesday during the official opening of the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) office at the Baobab Towers, Jackson,?St Michael.
Calling on all affiliated agencies and organizations to join forces in developing the sector and creating more employment, Farnum said the time was ripe for greater attention to be paid to agriculture especially in small vulnerable economies such as Barbados. (MM)
