PNM aims to boost local cocoa production


    PNM leader Dr. Keith Rowley says his Government plans to boost cocoa production if reelected to a second term in office.

    Speaking in Sangre Grande, he noted that cocoa takes a long time to grow and farmers would have been unable to sustain themselves during the time it takes for these crops to bear.

    He says an investment is needed, that will reap rewards in years to come.

    And Dr. Rowley says farmers will also be trained, among other things, in the PNM’s agricultural push.
