Guyana wants Caribbean nations to produce more food, move away from peasant-type agriculture

Guyana's President Bharrat Jagdeo is supporting a call for Caribbean nations to produce more food to feed their populations, according to Radio Jamaica. Such a policy would eliminate the need to buy high-priced food abroad. He also emphasized that the Caribbean region must move away from peasant-type agriculture. He has made an offer to regional governments to use land available in Guyana to produce food.
