Marketing now the main challenge - President Guebuza
Maputo, 24 May (AIM) - President Armando Guebuza told a press conference at the end of his tour of the central province of Zambezia on Sunday that the marketing of agricultural produce is now the main challenge the country is now facing.

The President said that during his tour of the province he could see that people have been increasing their production and improving productivity, but there is still a lot of work to be done in terms of marketing.

President Guebuza stressed that Mozambique can be self-sufficient in rice production within the next three to four years. To increase rice production and productivity, the government has been taking measures that include contracting Vietnamese and Japanese technicians to assist Mozambican farmers.

He said that besides the irrigation system in the Nante administrative post, in the Maganja da Costa district, the authorities have identified other irrigation schemes, which deserve special attention to expand the area under cultivation and improve productivity.

To encourage marketing of the surpluses and create reserves for cases of emergency, the government has already designed a programme to build silos in some districts with high agricultural potential.

"Silos will not cover all needs in a first phase", said President Guebuza, "but within two years we think that we will have a minimum capacity".

President Guebuza also spoke of the District Development Fund, warning that a general change of attitude is necessary, which implies a greater participation of the people and less friction between them and the managers. It will be necessary, through the local Consultative Councils, to understand that there are many more things that can be done with the available money.

Making a balance sheet of his visit to Zambezia, President Guebuza said that it hit the targeted objectives, particularly on broaching the themes of decentralization and the "green revolution" to fight against poverty.
