Guyana praised for its Pesticides and Toxic Chemicals Control Implementation Plan – 16th May 2013

shot0002Guyana is on the right track in terms of its efforts in Pesticides and Toxic chemicals control. This is the View of Richard Cook, who is an international consultant that helped to prepare a National Implementation Plan for  Guyana: The plan is required under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants which is convention Guyana  signed onto  in 2007.

Guyana is not known for producing Pesticides and most chemicals  used in the Agri sector and elsewhere, but  Dr. Leslie Munroe, who  is the Chairman of the Pesticide and Toxic Chemicals Control Board said they have to  strictly monitor the imports.

Representing the Government of Guyana was Permanent Secretary in the Agri Ministry George Jervis and he said that as a net exporter of food, Guyana has to be very careful with the products sent out for consumption.

He appealed for cooperation by all stakeholders to ensure that all systems are safe and meet all the requirements.

The Permanent Secretary then endorsed the plan and directed the Pesticide Board to lodge a copy of the plan with the relevant agency.
