Missing: the fisheries industry at CWA 2016
The Caribbean week of agriculture was filled with great presentations, on trade, transport, value chain development, sustainable research and food security policy. However it should be noted that the fisheries/marine science and research fields were terribly absent.
Are the value chains in the Caribbean choking development?
The reality of what lies beneath the golden sunsets and fertile black soils spanning the islands like a chain has more value than meets the eye.
Tradition vs Innovation; Caribbean Agriculture
“Will small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) be able to compete?” The increasing demand for Caribbean products has led to innovative approaches in resolving agricultural issues in the region. Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago are the leading producers and exporters, and while it is important to note that they lead the region in these areas, technological development has yet to reach the region’s small and sedium-sized snterprises (SMEs) at an affordable cost.
