As forges ahead to build a new and diversified agriculture sector, the Ministry of Agriculture through the Guyana Marketing Corporation will be hosting this year, the inaugural Agrifest , 's Premier Agriculture Trade and Investment Festival.


What is Agrifest ?


 Agrifest 2009 is a two-day trade and investment festival that will culminate the annual Agriculture Month activities, to be held on October 30 – 31. This event is a spin-off from the previously held Grow More Food Festival and Guyana Nites, which attracted tens of thousands of attendees.


Why Agrifest ?


  's agriculture sector is rapidly expanding. The drive towards diversifying the sector opens new areas of activity and opportunities, which when explored, will cement 's stature as the bread basket of the Caribbean , and its number one food supplier.


The growing activities in the new and emerging agriculture sector present avenues for business development, especially in areas such as value-added products, aquaculture and fruits and vegetables.  


's growing telecommunication capabilities and other infrastructure also provide ideal conditions for the expansion of agriculture trade and commerce.


Agrifest will therefore provide a platform from which these activities and potentials can be highlighted, existing agri-business relations strengthened, and new ventures created.   


Who will participate?


 All agencies and stakeholders within the agriculture sector (fruit & vegetable, crops & livestock, aquaculture, dairy, forestry, rice & sugar) will come together to showcase a combination of products and services which reflect


's ongoing agriculture diversification drive, and the resulting agri-business investment opportunities that exist, and are being created.


The private sector, Caricom member States, as well as contingents from neighbouring , and will also participate in this signature agriculture event, which is expected to attract more than 30,000 attendees over the two-day period.
