A senior official of the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture, IICA, has told Barbados the sector is in good hands.

Technical Specialist Dr. Roxanne Waithe made the comment after providing a progress report on initiatives and developments in agriculture between IICA and the Ministry of Agriculture.

She says a ‘Future Farmers Think Tank’ has been created by young farmers out of a youth project aimed at maintaining contact with IICA.

Ms. Waithe said work is also ongoing to attract women to agriculture.
