PM elaborates on national agricultural program II
PRIME MINISTER RESPONDS TO LEGISLATORS:
The Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa said last week in parliament when responding to an impromptu question which was earlier raised and directed to him by Rashid Ali Abdallah (CUF) during morning session. The legislator wanted to know plans by the government in its move to transform the agricultural sector so as to reduce poverty stricken situation among farmers in the country. Responding to this, the PM noted that, as the government is aware of the fact that, about 75 percent of its populace is consisting of farmers living in rural areas, it has targeted to empower farmers by giving them training that would make them become knowledgeable on various farming techniques.
