President launches new Agriculture and Innovation Entrepreneurship Programme

Young Guyanese to tap into multi-billion-dollar vegetable market

From 2018 to 2020, Guyana imported about $6 billion in carrots, broccoli and cauliflower. Now, a new youth agricultural initiative could see young Guyanese earning millions of dollars by producing these vegetables locally.

Last Tuesday, President Dr. Irfaan Ali launched the government’s new Agriculture and Innovation Entrepreneurship Programme in Georgetown. This programme is geared at boosting Guyana’s agricultural sector, focusing specialised markets that remain largely untapped. The production of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots are high-value crops being targeted initially.

Through this programme, the government will provide all the resources and materials to develop 25 shade houses in the first phase that will be used to house thousands. Members of the private sector will also be involved.
