Given the policies and acts pertinent
to "Resilience Economy" in the sector, following pinpoints are well-underscored
in my Ministry for higher performance:
1- Escalating productivity and production
of strategic crops;
2- Improving infrastructures for higher
3- Creating safe and reliable stocks of
strategic agro crops to ensure Food Security;
4- Paving the way for wider export of agro
crops and foodstuff; and
5 - Benefiting from external production
resource within the framework of “External Agriculture” initiative;

Upon this idea, productivity

technologies and know-how. The idea encompasses introduction of new machinery,
wider pressure irrigation system, high-performance seeds and greater processed
commodities for target markets.
Besides, the sector has encouraged intensive
practices under greenhouse farming operation for greater outputs and less water
