Minister Alfred Prospere thankful for the support

Taiwan and St Lucia sign phase two of 'Seven Crops Project'

Saint Lucia’s Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Food Security and Rural Development and the Taiwan Embassy in Saint Lucia, supported by Taiwan Technical Mission, signed the agreement to commence phase two of the Enhancement of Efficiency in the Production-Distribution Supply Chain of the Fruit and Vegetable Sector Project more commonly known as the Seven Crops Project.

Last October agriculture leaders -in partnership with the Taiwanese -Embassy initiated a series of events to build interest in locally-produced foods. This initiative formed part of the import substitution project to focus efforts on increased production of seven crops that will assist the ministry of agriculture's strategy to reduce the national food import bill.

“Phase two of the joint initiative by the ministry of agriculture and the Taiwan Technical Mission will see an expansion of crops other than the initial seven crops chosen,” the Ministry of Agriculture has stated. Minister Alfred Prospere, expressed gratitude to the government and people of Taiwan for their ongoing support in developing Saint Lucia's agriculture sector.
