EU-St Vincent funds

The EU is to provide €34 million for the continued development of the agricultural sector in St Vincent and the Grenadines. The agriculture minister for the Caribbean islands, Saboto Caesar, told farmers and other stakeholders that the funds are being provided under Banana Accompanying Measures that are supporting African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries adjusting to new global trade realities. “We have continued the stabilisation of the banana industry through Operations Cutback, Operations Flag back and control of the Black Stigatoka disease,” he said, adding that while there may have been several setbacks, “my request is that we look forward towards 2013 and beyond with optimism since the €34 million under the Banana Accompanying Measures will become available to start assisting crops and livestock farmers, fishermen and women of St Vincent and the Grenadines, agro processors, marketers and farming institutions and organisations.”
