    There needs to be an assessment of the agriculture sector to determine why it has been under performing, according to a PricewaterhouseCoopers attorney.

    Ms Angelique Bart, speaking at AMCHAM’s post-budget webinar today, says several incentives exist for the industry in T&T.

    Ms Bart says these measures are encouraging, particularly as the importance of food security has been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    However, she believes authorities need to look at the other challenges facing those involved in the sector and the impact on buyers.
