DAY one of the annual agricultural exhibition, Agrofest, has gotten off to a smooth start.
Word of this came from Chief Executive Officer of the Barbados Agricultural Society (BAS), James Paul, who spoke to the press yesterday during the three-day event staged by the BAS and held in Queen’s Park.
He told reporters that there were “minimum problems compared to previous years” and all the booths were with electricity and the exhibitors were prepared to welcome students from schools island-wide, who yearly are the first to patronise the event.
“Last night [Thursday night], we worked in terms of getting rid of the problems so that we had a pretty smooth start this morning. Also, I think that the exhibits were more ready for the school children when they came in and generally, I think it was a much better start than what we have had in previous years.”
