  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 extensive programme is being carried out by the Forestry division in the Ministry of Agriculture, to ensure the safety of the nation’s children at school.

Director of Forestry, Fitzgerald Providence, said the Department has been cutting trees and trimming areas in close proximity to schools.

Mr. Providence said this is being done to ensure that overhanging trees do not cause damage to schools or harm students during the hurricane season.

Mr. Providence urged schools to contact the Forestry Department for support in maintaining a safe environment.
