The National Agriculture and Trade Show (NATS) Committee, under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture, hereby informs the public that the National Agriculture and Trade Show 2019 will be held on April 26, 27 and 28, 2019 under the theme “Innovations in Technology: Driving a Climate Resilient and Competitive Agriculture and Food Sector”.

Preparation of the grounds is currently underway and the committee informs that the reservation and sale of concession stands, food stalls, open spots and commercial booths have commenced. Right of first refusal will be granted to 2018 lease holders and as such those vendors will have until March 16, 2019 to confirm their desire to re-establish their booth leases by contacting NATS Headquarters. This preference exists EXCEPT where there was a reconfiguration of the grounds and/or removal of booths, in which case that space is no longer available for rental.

Effective Monday, March 18, 2019 potential new vendors or those wishing to relocate to a new location will be invited to do so by visiting the NATS Headquarters located on the showgrounds to view available spaces and complete the necessary transactions, if so desired. During the grace granted to existing leases holders, new vendors may contact NATS headquarters to register their interest in spaces that may become available.

Vendors with down payments will have until April 13, 2019 to complete their payments after which that deposit becomes non-refundable.

The National Agricultural Trade Show is taking place this weekend at the showgrounds in the capital. Thousands of Belizeans from across the country are expected to converge in Belmopan where they are sure to find top up, phone deals as well as a variety of food and drink. Maneuvering the traffic on the highway and in the immediate area is only one hurdle that needs to be executed well. The Belize police department also has to keep the peace. Assistant Commissioner of Police Marco Vidal, Commander of Operations says the department has a strategy it will employ to keep the grounds peaceful for families and friends.

Sr. Supt. Marco Vidal Assistant Commissioner of Operations:The security that will be in place is one that is not unusual in terms of our officers deployed on the ground but aside from officers on the ground we will also have the technology to assist them. We will also have regular checkpoints along the road because of the fact that when people leave the area or when they are coming to the area they might be speeding or they might consuming alcoholic beverages so we have that in place. The same operation continues and that will be incorporated right into the National Agriculture and Trade Show activity but in terms of the security within the grounds again we will have our increased numbers. We know the areas that are vulnerable, as a matter of fact the Commissioner and I just came in from the grounds to revisit and see what other areas we needed to cover but certainly we will be with a big force out there and also on high alert but we will be bringing in the specialized units to assist in the security on the grounds.”

The Agricultural Show takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the entrance to Belmopan.

All roads lead to NATS

This weekend, April 26, 27, and 28, Belizeans, in the thousands, from every corner, will be converging on a sacred plot of land in the heart of the country to celebrate the farmers and tradespersons (agro-processors, manufacturers) at the annual National Agriculture and Trade Show. There will be other activities going on in other parts of the country, especially in sports as the football and basketball playoffs begin, but this weekend belongs to the heroes and heroines who provide us with food security and earn valuable foreign exchange so that we can purchase the goods we don’t produce at home.

These are not the best of times for many of our farmers, so it is important for visitors to the show to stop by their booths to hear about what they’re doing and show appreciation for the great effort they make every year for our country. Agriculture and the fisheries sector are no longer the largest foreign exchange earners in the country, but the production of sugar, citrus, bananas, livestock, shrimp, grains, and other agricultural commodities, remain essential to our economy.

On the trade side, our food processors, meat packers, confectionery makers, beverage producers, are all facing stiff competition from abroad, so they too will be glad to talk to visitors about the numerous products they have on the market, and to discuss with them how much they appreciate the support of consumers at home.

The Annual Agriculture and Trade Show moved to the grounds between Roaring Creek Village and the capital, Belmopan, in 1970, and from its inception it is an event that has captured the hearts and minds of thousands, the show setting new attendance records almost yearly.

The NATS committee says the theme for this year’s show is ”Innovations in Technology: Driving a Climate Resilient and Competitive Agriculture and Food Sector”, and it promises a show as exciting as any in the past. The NATS press release for this year’s show says, “The highlights of the event cover a wide range of activities and competition. A major activity that highlights the show is the rodeo.

Other displays include agro-processed products, art and craft, cultural food preparations, the petting zoo, crop, livestock judging, canoe race, musical performance and the mechanical rides.

The show also honors outstanding talented persons, through the selection of the Farmer of the Year in the categories of Senior, Junior and Lady Farmer and the nomination of Miss Agriculture.”

There is always tasty food aplenty at the show, a variety of the best of Belize’s cuisine, and delicious drinks made from local fruits and nuts, provided by food vendors who have acquired licenses from the NATS Committee. The show is always a great opportunity for friends and colleagues living in different parts of the country to meet and chat about all that is going on in the world.

Security is always a concern where there are great crowds, especially since thirsty Belizeans (and other visitors to the show) who are inclined to a little drinking will be imbibing from the ice-cold stock of locally produced beer, Belikin and Lighthouse, and other slightly spirituous drinks. The Police Department says they are ready to take care of visitors to the show, and ACP Marco Vidal has made the rounds to all the media houses to explain some of the increased safety measures they are introducing for the weekend.

The Amandala wishes one and all a safe and happy National Agriculture and Trade Show.
