Biography

Welcome

  Welcome to the website of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Rural Transformation, Industry & Labour.
The Ministry is the institutional body of the state responsible for the 
formulation, articulation and implementation of all policies and plans relating to Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Rural Transformation, Industry & Labour. 
The administrative arm of this Ministry is responsible for:
   - The co-ordination of all programmes of the various Departments, Divisions and Units.
  - The maintenance of communication with local, regional and international bodies affecting the functions of the Ministry.
  - The administration of revenue and expenditure transactions approved by Parliament.

An official launch was held Friday 10th May, for the 2019 Fisherman’s Month of activities.

The launch took place in the yard of the Agriculture Input Warehouse at the Kingstown Fish Market.

A month of activities has been planned in commemoration of the 44th year of celebrations commencing from May 10th, and culminating on Whit Monday June 10th.

The theme for this year’s celebration is "Climate Change affects the Ocean, Fish responsibly to Sustain the Industry"; and the slogan is 'We Fish It, You Dish It'.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Rural Transformation, Industry & Labour, said this year’s theme was selected because Climate Change is a serious threat facing all islands in the Caribbean.

The Ministry said over the past decade, the ocean’s warming has disrupted critical fisheries worldwide, and the Fisherman’s Day Committee is raising awareness on this issue.
