On Wednesday we told you of concerns expressed by Leader of the Opposition, John Briceno, as they relate to the sugar industry. According to Briceno the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association expressed concern over what was referred to as the high handed attitude of the leadership of BSIASR. BSCFA strongly believes that there must be a true and meaningful partnership between GOB, BSIASR and the Cane Farmers. Unfortunately they are not experiencing this at the moment. They have expressed some serious concerns over BSIASR’s insistence on planting more cane. Love News asked Minister of Agriculture, Godwin Hulse to respond to these comments since he had recently met with the cane farmers.
Briceno had reportedly met with the sugarcane farmers this past Monday in Orange Walk.
