IICA Technical Specialist says Food Safety & Environment Standards stunts growth of OECS member states
Technical Specialist from IICA, Kent Coipel, says agricultural trade is the most important contributor to economies of OECS member states.
However, he says due to issues of food safety and environmental standards from major markets, along with competition from regional and global markets, growth of OECS member states has been stunted.
Coipel says as a result, these markets have sought to modernize their legislation governing food safety.
