President Chan Santokhi met with Patrick Antoine, chairman of the Caricom Private Sector Organization (CPSO).  There has been extensive discussion about the ways in which the Caribbean Chamber of Commerce can support Suriname in the growth of agriculture and the industrialization of this sector.  This also ties in with the ‘Industrial Policy’ portfolio that Suriname manages within the Caricom.

The CPSO chairman has emphasized that it is necessary for all parties to develop an unambiguous policy.  The private sector plays an indispensable role in this, he says.  During the maintenance it was established, among other things, that in order to develop the agricultural sector, work must be done on the accelerated facilitation of entrepreneurship.   The Suriname Communications Service reports that trade mainly of pork, cassava and by-products was also discussed.

President Santokhi has noted that the common interests must be put first.  Cooperation based on mutual benefit is crucial.  Santokhi has informed Antoine that Suriname has enough fertile land to invest.  A delegation from the CPSO will soon come to Suriname for concrete investment projects.  These projects will be a collaboration between Suriname, Guyana and Barbados.

The meeting took place in Port of Spain on Thursday.  Minister Albert Ramdin of Foreign Affairs, International Business and International Cooperation also took part in this meeting.
