A website for the dissemination of information on the upcoming Regional Agriculture mega event, the Caribbean Week of Agriculture (CWA), has been established.
The website, cwa.caricom.org, can also be accessed via www.cwa.caricom.org.
The website aims at maximizing the dissemination of information on the yearly, roving agriculture event and caters to the wide cross-section of stakeholders in the agriculture sector.
Via the website, stakeholders can find general information on the event and programme of activities as well as important information, reports and registration forms.
The CWA Secretariat is located in the Ministry of Agriculture compound, Shiv Chanderpaul Drive & Regent Street, Georgetown, Tel: 592-226-2219.
Caribbean Week of Agriculture 2013 is the 12th edition of the Region’s premier agricultural event.
It will be hosted by the Government of Guyana at the Guyana International Conference Centre from October 4-12, under the theme `Linking the Caribbean for Regional Food and Nutrition Security and Rural Development’.
The local steering committee, comprising members of the Ministry of Agriculture and other ministries and organisations, CARICOM, FAO & IICA met on July 18 and decided on a number of planning issues.
Agriculture Minister, Dr. Leslie Ramsammy says that he envisages that this event will see the transformation of the CWA into the Caribbean’s premier technical meeting for agriculture and will attract ministers, senior agriculture professionals, farmers and entrepreneurs who will be able to see, experience and learn about new trajectories for agriculture.
