Seems like the GOG needs to examine this approach of subsidies. Too bad they didn't see fit to help save the sugar industry. Maybe it is not too late?
Looks like the govt wants to backtrack and keep a few of the estates functioning. They can downsize but not without developing new industries to create employment for those who are displaced from the sugar industry. Foreign exchange in the Treasury is depleting as the price of Gold is also dwindling while the sugar estates are closing. Tough economic times are ahead if that oil lottery isn't distributed well and it doesn't arrive on time.
