Look to agriculture

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I offer a suggestion to Prime Minister Andrew Holness on one way to help grow the economy so that the country can see significant returns.

Look seriously at agriculture. This is an area that offers a lot of opportunities for both young and older people to realise their dreams. Agriculture feeds every country. For many in Jamaica, agriculture provides the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.

The Government should support and promote the agriculture ministry and try to attract more people to grow what they eat and eat what they grow. This will also help to balance the Budget.
