“The $700 Million planned investment in the agric sector would lead to a complete transformation of the sector and bring enormous prosperity to both our farmers and the nation”, he said in a statement commemorating this year’s farmers day.
“As a farmer myself, I always look forward to days like this when the work we do to feed our beloved nation gets recognized and appreciated.
As a Member of Parliament representing a constituency which is largely agrarian, I am very familiar with the challenges our farmers face day in and out.
And that is why I am excited by the Government’s Marshall Plan for Agriculture which is focused on putting agricultural growth and development back on the agenda of priorities”
