Suriname: Eggplant R-SAT validation workshop

A one-day Eggplant R-SAT Validation Workshop was held on 24 May 2022, in Paramarbio, bringing together 20 key representatives from the public and private horticulture sector to present results of the application of the R-SAT tool to the SPS control system and to identify priority activities. The workshop was delivered by COLEACP and CAHFSA in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Fisheries of the Republic of Suriname.

Prior to this workshop, the COLEACP expert team-initiated dialogue and engagement between key stakeholders, both public and private, in their assessment of Suriname’s national SPS systems to strengthen them in line with international standards and regulations. The aim of the workshop was to facilitate the development of a national priority action plan to strengthen SPS systems that is firmly based on a common strategic vision, agreed by all stakeholders. The workshop concluded with a presentation of the updated national priority action plan which was endorsed by the key players of the sector.

This activity is supported by the Fit For Market SPS programme, implemented by COLEACP within the Framework of Development Cooperation between the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and the European Union.
