we import something as simple as onions, that is absolutely and totally ridiculous, Says Garvey, when we have a tropical country
Hear what Garvey said to the Jamaican Government and people. ...The white economic structures is going to have to change. Jamaica has got to be prepared for that, where we've got to be self-sufficient, at the present time we import even something as simple as onions. That is absolutely and totally ridiculous, when we have a tropical country and we can have two or three growing seasons where you can grow anything: you can sow a seed out there and tomorrow you have a massive tree, not just a plant, so it's absolutely ridiculous for us not to be self-sufficient in food.
