Goverment targets modern agro-processing centre
The Government is seeking to reverse plans to sell the Agricultural Marketing Corporation (AMC) complex on Spanish Town Road in Kingston.
The nine-acre property, which was put up for sale in January 2016, as previously used to package exports and process produce for local distribution.
Audley Shaw, the minister of industry, commerce, agriculture and fisheries, said that the Government wants to partner with the private sector to create a modern agro-processing centre "so that every young person who wants factory space, will be able to get it at the AMC".
"We need to create the factory and refrigeration space,” he said.
