New Delhi: Suriname is moving to attract Indian agro-processing firms in a bid to develop its agricultural sector, one of its major earners.

The country’s president, Chandrikapersad Santokhi, and its agriculture minister Parmanand Prahlad Sewdien have visited India this year pitching the country’s agricultural sector to Indian firms.

Officials from Bajaj Processpack Ltd, a leading food processing and packaging firm, have made two visits to the South American country and the company is mulling making investments there. Agricultural cooperation has long been a mainstay of India’s bilateral relationship with Suriname, which is home to a large Indian diaspora.
