Introductory Remarks

“For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Madam Speaker, I am honoured and humbled to stand before you at this time as Jamaica’s youngest Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries.

I would like to express my gratitude to God for his continued endearing mercies, my appreciation to my parents, June and Ronald Green for instilling in me the principles I live by. I cannot deny that my interest in farming was cultivated by my father who studied at the Jamaica School of Agriculture and went on to serve in agricultural extension services and veterinary services both here and in the Cayman Islands. Him taking me on his many trips to farms have borne fruit.

Thank you Daddy.
