The visit forms part of a series of visits to work places the President is undertaking this year.

The President said that the visit was an opportunity to see what is happening in the agricultural sector which is also a pillar of the economy, see the level of improvement of the different measures put in place, and how this sector can move forward in its development. He said that the Research Centre holds the key for future development in that sector.

“The Research Centre should make further studies and see how best to develop plants that can easily adapt to the our climate especially with the change in climate as well as our soil in order to have a variety of plants for more harvesting,” said the President.

Mr. Michel added that he was encouraged by the progress seen on the different farms he has visited and commended the entrepreneurs and farmers for their hard work. He noted that this visit has given him hope for the future seeing the work being done by the government to improve this sector and how the farmers have introduced innovations to continue to develop.

“Everyone involved in this sector should join hands in partnership and take ownership of the agricultural sector, whereby the government, agencies, entrepreneurs, and farmers should work together to see how best to develop this pillar of our economy. The government will continue to give its support and listen to the farmers with their initiatives and as a key source to solutions,” said President Michel.

The President said that the government is doing its best to give more loans to entrepreneurs, especially smaller businesses, particularly for agriculture and fishing. He remarked that the country needs to continue to encourage the small businesses so that they can invest and succeed also.
