Cuba’s new Ambassador to Barbados, Yanet Stable Cárdenas, is committed to working to improve agriculture in both countries.
Ambassador Cárdenas indicated this during a courtesy call with Barbados’ Minister of Agriculture, Food and Nutritional Security, Indar Weir.
Noting that Minister Weir had started the conversation with her predecessor towards improving agriculture in Barbados, the Ambassador said she hoped to continue those discussions and to have “concrete actions in the agricultural sphere”.
She also stated that Cuba was open to identifying the challenges and working towards developing solutions in the future, which would lead to “many opportunities” in the field of agriculture.
Minister Weir, who congratulated Ambassador Cárdenas on her appointment, acknowledged that there were many areas for discussion and collaboration and stated that sugar cane was at the top of the list.
