Mottley: Ordinary folk vital to food security

Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley says the participation of ordinary people in regional trade and services will play a significant role in the realisation of regional food security.

“It will be assured when ordinary people trade when ordinary people buy and sell goods and services among each other,” Mottley said in Guyana on Sunday night as she addressed a reception hosted by Gaico, one of the participating local companies in the 2022 International Energy Conference and Expo Guyana that gets under way today.

Mottley told the local private sector that trade will be occurring in an environment threatened by climate changes and that both Guyana and Barbados must find new areas of opportunities for trade, acknowledging that achieving food security is of utmost importance.

Mottley is leading a 14-member delegation for the four-day working visit. She told the reception that achieving food security is an important part of the fight against climate change. (CMC)
