Saint Lucia's once-thriving banana industry, which is currently struggling to maintain production, quality standards and revenue inflows, continues to receive technical and financial support from Taiwan’s Technical Mission. Ambassador of Taiwan to Saint Lucia. His Excellency, Peter Chia-yen Chen, said Taiwan will continue to provide assistance to Saint Lucia’s agriculture industry as they work to strengthen their bilateral relationship: “We continue to support the Banana Productivity Improvement Project and Taiwan is committed to providing reliable assistance and incorporating new innovative technologies to Saint Lucia's Agricultural Industry.”

Menafn.com quoted Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries, Rural Development and Food Security, Alfred Prospere,as saying: “With the severe and almost complete destruction of our banana fields, this support will go towards rehabilitation of fields, improving drainage, improving farm irrigation, farmer certification and training, pest and disease control, and lessening the dependence on agrochemicals, while eliminating over-reliance on one market and building resilience in the industry.”
