August 18th, 2022

Barbados may be getting closer to using Suriname to help provide an important supply of corn to help the island’s farmers.

That’s according to Agriculture Minister Indar Weir, who made the comment after a special meeting with Suriname’s Minister of Agriculture, Parmanand Sewdien and his delegation, at Pelican Village on Wednesday.

Mr. Weir says further specifics have been discussed, following an agreement signed between the two countries back in July.
