In order to truly reduce poverty, developing countries needed to manufacture more products themselves, Grenada's Minister for Finance and Foreign Trade Nazim V Burke said. "Despite the quality of our cocoa, the fact of the matter is, we've not been manufacturing anything -- we're not manufacturing chocolates, we've simply been exporting cocoa beans," Mr Burke said.
