Welcome

  Welcome to the website of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Rural Transformation, Industry & Labour.
The Ministry is the institutional body of the state responsible for the 
formulation, articulation and implementation of all policies and plans relating to Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Rural Transformation, Industry & Labour. 
The administrative arm of this Ministry is responsible for:
   - The co-ordination of all programmes of the various Departments, Divisions and Units.
  - The maintenance of communication with local, regional and international bodies affecting the functions of the Ministry.
  - The administration of revenue and expenditure transactions approved by Parliament.

Vincentians are being encouraged to eat more locally produced food, as this country joins with the global community in observing 'World Food Day'.

The appeal has come from Manager of the Arrowroot Association, Selmon Walters, as the Association prepares to host a 'National Madungo Festival' this month.

The Festival will take place on Monday, October 28th, 2019, at the Rabacca National Park, as part of activities to celebrate this county’s 40th Anniversary of Independence.

Mr. Walters said the Festival is important as efforts continue to revive the use of Madungo as a main food staple here.

Mr. Walters said the Association will continue to host the Madungo Festival on an annual basis.
