The East Agricultural Region serves farmers from Pond Casse through to Petit Soufriere, and a number of projects are being undertaken simultaneously to increase the output of those involved in the agricultural sector and processors who depend on the production within that sector.

Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Blue and Green Economy Agriculture and National Food Security, Kyra Paul said the tour began with a site visit to the Formie Feeder Road located in Castle Bruce.

The delegation also visited one of the most prolific farmers in the area as well as the Easy Side Bakery in the Kalinago Territory where works were recently completed as well as others.
