Collaboration to Improve Quality in Farming
Minister for Agriculture. Lands, Forestry and Fisheries Honourable Moses “Musa” Jn Baptiste is eager to see collaboration between his Ministry and the Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards deepen. The Minister said the work undertaken by the SLBS to support quality in farming and agro-processing will help focus efforts to improve the fortunes of the sector.
The Minister was speaking at a Quality Infrastructure Dialogue in June targeting the agricultural sector. According to Minister Jn Baptiste work on a laboratory facility by his Ministry will house a key quality infrastructure institution that of metrology. He said metrology is of extreme importance to the sector to ensure that the interest of agriculture enjoys pride of place in the development of the infrasructure to support quality.
