We all must champion the Region’s food and nutrition security vision – CARICOM SG

CARICOM Secretary-General, Dr. Carla Barnett, addresses the opening of the Agri Investment Forum and Expo in Trinidad and Tobago

CARICOM Secretary-General, Dr. Carla Barnett, wants all hands on deck to achieve the food and nutrition security vision, particularly the target of reducing food imports by 25 per cent by 2025.

In her address at the opening of the Trinidad and Tobago Agri Investment Forum and Expo, at the National Academy of Performing Arts in Trinidad and Tobago on Friday – the second such event to be held in the Region – Secretary-General Barnett said:

“There is a role for all to play. This is our Region. Our participation and support matter.  It is crucial that we spread the word, and encourage each and every one to support regionally produced agricultural commodities; plant your own backyard gardens; invest in the agricultural value chain. We all have to champion the vision of regional food and nutrition security.”
