Local farmers have been gifted with another donation from Taiwan through the Government of St Lucia.
The disclosure was made by St Lucia’s Agriculture Minister Moses Jn Baptiste who informed that the fruit and vegetable crop and extension assistance project is expected to support farmers who have moved away from the once successful banana industry.
The formal handing over of the project took place over a week ago.
Mr Jn Baptiste explains that the project is also expected to target banana farmers who are unable to meet the standard for shipping bananas to Europe.
The project originally began here in 2011.
