The Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda held a virtual discussion with a non-profit company that is offering to harvest Sargassum before it reaches our beaches and to turn the Sargassum into several useful products. The firm will rely upon the hotel sector, worst affected by the Sargassum, to fund the exercise equitably.

The Cabinet was informed by the Minister of the Environment that a fund from the Japanese Government will be more than sufficient to supplement any shortfall that the virtual presenters may encounter. There will follow a meeting between the not for profit group proposing the harvesting of Sargassum, twinned with the gift by the Japanese.
