Rice “conspiracy”?

blogosphere

President of the Agricultural Society of Trinidad and Tobago (ASTT) and outgoing chairman of the National Agricultural Marketing and Development Corporation (NAMDEVCO) Wendy Lee Yuen yesterday expressed a concern that there was a “conspiracy” among rice importers to artificially inflate the price of rice.

Lee Yuen was speaking to the Express following a meeting with Legal Affairs Minister Danny Montano convened which the minister convened to discuss issues surrounding the increased production of root crops or “ground provision” as an alternative to rice. Montano had made a public call for the population to turn to root crops as an alternative to rice, as a response to the recent twenty per cent increase in the price of rice.

Lee Yuen explained that although “importers say that the rice from Belize, Suriname and Guyana, which enters Trinidad duty-free, is not of good enough quality”, those countries continue to export in huge volumes.
