Government To Transition MNIB Into Public-Private Partnership

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.
