The Minister of Agriculture says that Belize has been making some strides in the agriculture sector.  The government has embarked on a census that seeks to map the entire agriculture sector in the country to record accurate data on agricultural production. One of the more important objectives of this program is to promote biosecurity, which is a series of measures to protect against the entry and spread of pests and diseases.  This will allow Belize to meet international trading standards and improve exports.

He also spoke of the improvements in agriculture.
