He made this statement during a recent press which was held to update the nation on preliminary work which was being done for the establishment of the local Coffee Industry.
Minister Caesar said the Ministry of Agriculture continues to develop the Agri-Export Strategy Initiative which will see farmers being able to export their produce to traditional and non-traditional markets.
