MP Ramdial: What’s the plan for agriculture?
What’s the plan for agriculture in this country? Opposition MP Ramona Ramdial wants to know.
She lamented Government’s move to shut down Caroni Green, a state-enterprise which produced, processed and exported hot peppers.
The move has put 77 workers out of jobs.
Mrs. Ramdial says with news that the cost of food prices will rise very soon, it gives the Government more reason to stimulate the local agriculture industry.
She says instead, they are shutting down viable projects like Caroni Green, which will continue to contribute to a high food import bill.
The MP has also called upon the agricultural associations and groups to let their voices be heard, regarding this issue.
