Job Capapinha, speaking at a meeting with agricultural entrepreneurs, said that given the current economic environment characterized by the low price of a barrel of oil, agro-livestock entrepreneurs should improve strategies to reduce the impact of the crisis.

He referred to the rich potential of the municipality of Cela, in the domain of the production of diverse goods, to guarantee the well-being of the populations.

He said that the peasant families should expand their production areas with a view to producing food for their livelihoods and income from the sale of the products.

He said that the Government will support peasant families with agricultural implements, seeds and fertilizers, but it is necessary that they be organized in cooperatives so that there is a greater control.

"We have fertile land, water and people with capacity to develop agriculture on a large scale," stressed the governor.
