The recommendation came from the First Consultative Council of the Ministry of Agriculture held this Thursday in Luena, Moxico province.
A statement from the forum points out that the lack of factories of production in the country, has a negative impact on the prices of agricultural products, making national agriculture uncompetitive.
The document points out that the investment in factories is aimed at the need for improved seeds, fertilizer plants or mixers, agricultural implements, tractor assembly line and irrigation systems, among other needs in the sector.
The event, held under the motto "Development of Agriculture as the Basis of Economic Diversification in the Country," was led by the Minister of Agriculture and Forestry, Marcos Nhunga, and was attended by representatives of the country's 18 provinces.
