BARBADOS HAS DECLARED it has a dispute with a key CARICOM agency and has threatened to withhold all future contributions until the matter is resolved.

DAILY NATION investigations have revealed that the matter surrounds the refusal of the new chairman of the board of governors of the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI), to sign off on the appointment of Barbadian Barton Clarke to the post of executive director of that body, which has been vacant for more than two years.

Apparently the Freundel Stuart Government is so upset with what it has described as “tardiness” by the chairman on the appointment of Barbados’ chief agricultural officer to the post that it has instructed Minister of Agriculture Dr David Estwick to intervene. (RRM)
