Cocoa Association the nl y one that is

finaricially soiud."
Step In To Rescue
In the last wo mionihs, he said, Govenanent.
has had to step in to rescue both GBC S and
GC.NA from financial difficulty while, on
ithe c.orntary, GCA had recently paid a
"bonus" of S $,. 2 million to its members.

Itemising and lauding the efforts of the GCA
Boadi of Management ?o improve the lot of
farmers, Mr Bizan said these successes do
not suggest the Association should rest on
its laIures.

bid farevell to Mr-Lai Shen-husiurg of the
Chinese Agricdultural Mission in Grenada
who has been promoted to head the Chinese
Agricultural Mission in St Lucia.

Present at the ceremony, Mr George Brizan,
Minister of Agriculture, paid tribute to the
work done by Mr Lai and said that, in the
vider context of the Organisation of East
Caribbean States, Gienada will continue to
benefit from Mr Lai's expertise.
There Has BeenA Transfer
Another ccsoling fact, the Minis tar said, is
that there has been a ransferof"know-how"
from Mr Lai to petsor-nel in the Agronomy
Division of the Ministry of Agricultuai.

JMr Brizan said the reality for small
countries with small populations and
limited domestic markets is that agri-
culture is challenging and difficult and it
will continue that way for the remainder
of this decade-

The targets for bananas, he said, are to
iemphasise production of quality fruit and.

the highest possible tormage per acre. With
the achieveraentof these targets, the Minister
said, Grenada may be able to survive after
the year 2000.
Broaden The Agricultural Base
The additional strategy, he said, is to broaden
tha agricultural base so that, by increasing
the number of agricultural items produced
and exported, the relative dependence on
bananas vill be reduced..

"The greater the number and volume of
crops prodAued and exported", Mr Brizan
said, "the better insulated the agricultural
economy vill be from violent fluctuations
vhich take place internationally"

The Chinsse Agricultura. Mission in
Grenada, he said, is central involved in
assisting Grenadian tanners to produce tih
highest possible yield of quality bananas,
and in development of additional crops with
export potential.

meet its contractual oIbliga ions. As a
further handicap, this production decline
occurred just as the international market
collapsed to its lowest levels in 20 years.

"These two developments made it
impossible to achieve our plans for
financial self-sufficiecy vhich we had
hoped to achieve during the year,' he said -

The Chairman said the Association ended
the year in a similar vositon to that in which
it started, that is, a "breakaven performance"
and dependence on the ammual STABEX
grant from the European Etonoric
Community to maintain prices to tlhe

According to the audited accounts of the
Association for the year ending 30th.

September 1992, presented to the Annual
General Meating Gross Sales vere
EC$7,244,962 from vhich Cocoa Famiers
received EC $4,5 7,599 as "advances".

In the accounts, STABEX and other
grants amounting to EC $1,822,641 are
shovn as "operating income" vhich, alter
expenses are deducted, results in a "Net
Income for the Year" of EC $1,096,955.
However, if those grants are not taken as
"income" there is a loss on trading of
EC $725,686

Taking the grants into account, provision
is made to pay EC$1,235,519 to cocoa
farmers as "surplus., leaving a net loss
for the year of EC$138,526.

of Government Ministers in the House on

"It is almost impossible for the

debate on a Motion brought by him
requesting that, based on a highly
unfavorable Reipot on the General

The. debate brought out the fact that the
