  1. Antigua has a lot of grassland. Maybe it should focus more on animal husbandry and also those produce items that grow better in dry conditions. The country could then trade meats, sausages, cheeses etc. for veges and fruits that require wetter conditions coming from the mountainous islands that cannot produce as much meat.

    In other words, maybe there should be greater collaboration among agricultural Ministries to assess the region for the best environmental conditions to produce various items and work out an overall regional plan instead of each country going it completely alone.
