The group is scheduled to leave the island next Wednesday, June 10, for the seminars, which will run from Friday, June 12, to Thursday, July 2, on Hainan Island, China. 

The delegation will be led by senior agricultural officer Leslie Brereton and will include representatives from the Barbados Investment Development Corporation (BIDC), the Barbados Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (BADMC), and a number of private persons involved in agriculture.
