Cabinet approves MASP

Cabinet has given approval for the US$25 million Modernisation of the Agriculture Sector Programme (MASP) to be included in the Public Sector Investment Programme.
 
The initiative is a five-year project that will be executed by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and financed by a US$25 million loan from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
 
Speaking at Wednesday's post-Cabinet press briefing, Floyd Green, Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, said the objective of the MASP is to increase agricultural productivity and income for beneficiary smallholder farmers.
