The one-week Caribbean-Pacific Agri-Food Forum began here Monday with the region being urged to come up with solutions to the many problems plaguing the development of the agricultural sector in the Caribbean. Director of the Netherlands-based Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU (CTA), Michael Hailu, told delegates that the main purpose of the week-long event is “not to be talking a lot about our problems and challenges”, which, he acknowledged, seems to be the trend in many of these workshops, in the Caribbean and other regions.
