St. Vincent and the Grenadines approves the first Parliamentary Front in an English-speaking country at the Caribbean
Members of parliament from both the governing and opposition parties reached agreement to prioritize the fight against hunger in the framework of a State vision, overcoming partisan differences in a matter that generated full consensus among the decision makers.
The imminent election process that lies ahead in SVG was no obstacle to its House of Parliament adopting by consensus the resolution approving the formation of the PFH.
SVG has shown significant progress in the fight against hunger, however their members of parliament have expressed their will to not stop until the number of people suffering from hunger is equal to 0.
The PFH in SVG is established as a forum for debate, discussion and reflection with a focus on ensuring institutional strengthening for the total eradication of hunger, ensuring the improvement of the quality of life of its citizens.
The formation of the PFH in SVG is evidence of the scope and potential that exists within a framework of regional integration with Latin America, a region that in the framework of the CELAC comprising the nations of Latin America and the Caribbean has proposed a roadmap aimed at the realization of common goals, emphasizing among them the achievement of Food and Nutrition Security.
This Parliamentary motion has been lead by the Minister of Agriculture, Saboto Caesar, together with opposition representatives such us Roland Matthews. This action denote the great effort to join different sectors in order to strengthen the fight against hunger in a framework of respect for human rights, without forgetting the need to generate development opportunities and revitalize the agricultural sector.
