El wine tasting de vinos argentinos de la bodega Trapiche en la Residencia oficial tuvo una importante repercusión en los medios locales. En particular, el periódico Barbados Today destacó en su edición dominical que: "The South American nation is one of the top food-producing and food-exporting countries of the world, with agricultural goods, both raw and processed, earning over half of the country s foreign exchange, and, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), six per cent of its gross domestic product of over US$583 million comes from the sector. On the other hand, Barbados food import bill stands at $500 million a year. The Argentine government launched a Participative and Federal Strategic Plan for the Agrifood Sector and Agro-industry, with a view to boosting the agrifood and agro-industrial sector, increasing value added and strengthening the country s role in global value chains by 2020. A national food security plan was developed to grant the entire population, in particular the most vulnerable groups, access to a sufficient and varied diet".
