The handing-over ceremony took place on January 11 at the Ministry of Agriculture Project Office at Needsmust. It underscored the Taiwanese government’s confidence in the skills passed on to the federation’s agricultural technical officers, as the operation of the facility was turned over to the local officers.

“We can go through many instances in agriculture where you have partnered with us and helped us to improve the quality of our production and today signals the importance of two important aspects of that development: the handing over of this particular facility and the handing over of a cheque in relation to Eco-Park,” recorded thestkittsnevisobserver.com.
