Samuda Expecting Major Growth In Agriculture Sector This Fiscal Year

RJR News / Agriculture Minister Karl Samuda has said he is anticipating a 12.6 per cent growth in the sector this fiscal year.      Speaking Friday morning at a American Chamber of Commerce of Jamaica (AMCHAM) breakfast meeting, Mr. Samuda said despite the challenges, the sector continues to grow. “The Ministry of Agriculture alone will contribute three per cent of the five (per cent) that we expect to have in four (years). I haven’t seen anything to dissuade me from that conclusion. The only thing that I’m relying on is that everybody else will do well so that we can hopefully even surpass the five per cent goal that we have for ourselves,” he declared.
