By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Minister of Agriculture Jose Abelardo Mai is attending Brazil’s three-day National Coconut Fair (Fenacoco) which starts today (August 10) and runs until Friday.

As an integral part of his push to promote agriculture so it keeps providing food for the Belizean table and foreign exchange earnings for the country, Minister Mai has now gone beyond the Central American region and Mexico. He is looking for new avenues to solidify agriculture as a bastion of the Belizean economy.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise, Mai travelled to Brazil leading a delegation that includes the Chief Executive Officer in his Ministry Servulo Baeza and eight entrepreneurs.

The Fenacoco website says the Brazil National Coconut Fair is being held under the theme ‘Technology, Innovation’.

The Fenacoco attracts “producers, entrepreneurs, managers of the public and private sectors of areas related to culture, products, derivatives, processing of dry coconut shell residues, green and endocarp, cooperatives, artisans, environmentalists, researchers, engineers, architects, professionals, teachers, students, press and other interested in the sustainability of the various types of coconut existing in the world”.

The National Coconut Fair (Fenacoco) seeks to “study, discuss and promote the promotion of the coconut production chain, in view of this market so promising for Brazil and for the world”.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise’s delegation is also visiting EMBRAPA Agroindústria Tropical in Fortaleza. There they intend to gather “a first-hand experience on the advanced technical knowledge of the institution, as well discuss future cooperation projects, and the commercialization of national machinery and equipment,” said a press release by the Government of Belize Press Office.
