Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley joined Dr Mohamed Irfaan Ali, President of Guyana and several other CARICOM leaders at the official opening of the Agri-Investment and Expo in Guyana on Thursday May 19.
Dr Keith Rowley arrived in Guyana on Tuesday where he joined other regional leaders in Guyana.
At the 33rd Inter-Sessional Conference of Heads of Government, the leaders of the Caribbean Community agreed that an Agri- Investment Forum and Expo would be an appropriate platform to address the issue of investment in the regional agriculture sector.
The forum is geared towards the promotion, engagement, and informed dialogue among key stakeholders along the agri-food value chain. It will bring together policymakers, development partners, foreign and local private investors, farmers and distributors to determine how investment can be encouraged so as to reduce the food import bill by 25 per cent by 2025.
