The summit was held last Thursday 31st August, 2023 and Friday 1st September, 2023 at the NIS Conference Room, to discuss the Food and Agriculture Systems Transformation (FAST) Strategy.

Speaking with NBC News at the conclusion of the deliberations, Minister Caesar said the issues discussed included reviving an arrangement for collective marketing.

The FAST strategy was created to establish more efficient and sustainable methods for food and agriculture production, processing, and distribution, to offset rising food costs.
