PR – A Special Press Briefing will be held on Monday, February 13, 2023, at 1:30 p.m., to discuss the Government’s plans on the way forward for the Marketing and National Importing Board (MNIB). All stakeholders, the media and the public are encouraged to tune in to the discussion via the Government Information Service (GIS) on Channel 22 and on Facebook and YouTube.
The Government of Grenada has taken the difficult decision to dissolve the operations of the MNIB and restart the entity as a Public Private Partnership, following extensive consultations with stakeholders on the most effective way forward.
A comprehensive review of all recommendations emanating from the town hall meetings held in January 2023, in addition to dialogue with staff and management of the MNIB, and input from additional private sector stakeholders, informed the Government’s decision.
Earlier this week, meetings were held with the Board and the Unions representing employees to communicate the Government’s plans. Consultations are expected to continue with all parties, including creditors and other stakeholders, as the transition progresses.
The Government of Grenada thanks all stakeholders who contributed to this process and looks forward to continued engagement to safeguard Grenada’s food security.
