Agriculture Minister Clarence Rambharat recently met with Jules Bijl, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to T&T, to discuss collaborations on export opportunities for cocoa and cocoa products to the Netherlands and the potential for the horticultural sector with youth involvement.

“We need some help in our horticulture sector,” Rambharat said.

This led to discussions on possible technical assistance that can focus on an evaluation of the local market, the varieties that will do well here and how young people can grow and develop businesses in the sector.

Bijl said: “It is important for us both to know what each of our country is doing in the agriculture sector so we can see how we can help each other.”

The ministry will collaborate with the Dutch Embassy on two seminars in February.
