The National Agribusiness Expo took place March 1-3 on New Providence under the theme Progressing Toward Food Security.

“These expos have been a dedicated means of showcasing the product of the hard work, skill and expertise of our farmers, fishers and processors,” said Minister of Agriculture Larry Cartwright. “They also highlight the critical importance of the agriculture and fisheries sectors to the economy of The Bahamas. Expos have served to attract young Bahamians to the sectors and inspire agribusiness entrepreneurship.”

The government has said that existing legislation will designate 50 per cent of the Bahamas territory as Marine Protected Areas. This coincides with the release of results of a recent survey of coral reefs in The Bahamas, which has revealed their vulnerability to overfishing and climate change.

Tourism and Aviation Minister Vincent Vanderpool-Wallace was at Lynden Pindling International Airport earlier in the week to welcome the return of Delta Airlines's non-stop service from New York. The flight serves the single most important market for tourism in The Bahamas, according to the Minister. Watch a video here.
