PM Harris to push agriculture with Guyana after elections

Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris will be looking to foster relations in the area of agriculture, as well as in other socio-economic areas, he told this media house during an exclusive interview on Monday last, at the opening of the ACCP conference at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort.

“Guyana has developed a good reputation for doing some interesting things in the area of food security and attempting to achieve to some degree food security and self-sufficiency in that particular area. And there is much that we can learn from Guyana and the Guyanese people,” Harris said. “So it is across a pathway of socio-economic endeavours we are hoping to see expansion in the relationship with the Government of Guyana.”   

The relationship that the federation has with its sister CARICOM nation in South America is a long-standing one, which Dr. Harris indicated saw the Guyanese people providing assistance with the sugar industry. 

“A part from what the outcomes are, this government will work with the elected government of the people of Guyana. In that regard, we have had established strong relations with the people of Guyana. In recent times through their involvement in our sugar industry and at the governmental level,” Harris explained.

PM Harris pointed out that it was with the assistance of the Government of Guyana and their Brazilian colleagues, which resulted in the federation’s involvement the ‘Partial Scope Agreement’.

“So the Brazil, Guyana, St. Kitts-Nevis Partial Scope Agreement is one area we hope to continue in engagement,” said Harris, as he indicated the high levels of cooperation and collaboration with Guyana and Brazil, to bring about an agreement that would benefit the manufacturers in St. Kitts and Nevis.

The first-time prime minister stated that he is hopeful for a peaceful election in the multi-racial CARICOM nation.

Generally, one would want to hope for very peaceful general elections in Guyana, and we wish that the will of the people would triumph, as a result of the polling exercise,” said Prime Minister Harris.
