Discussions included financial assistance for the establishment of cold storage facilities in the northern, western and central areas of Belize where onions and potatoes are produced.

Another area of interest at the meeting was the improvement of livestock breeds and capacity building for technical officers at the Ministry of Agriculture.

The delegation then traveled to Barton Creek in the Cayo District to visit cold storage facilities used by farmers to extend shelf life and availability of produce for the domestic market.
