Agric Minister Says Investment Will Enhance Food Security 

MONROVIA, April 14 (LINA) - Agriculture Minister Dr. Moses Zinnah has indicated that investing in agriculture through Public,-Private Partnership (PPP) will go a long way in enhancing food security and significantly developing the agriculture sector in Liberia.

Minister Zinnah stressed that investment in agriculture will transform the sector with the value added chains of processing local crops into finished products for the Liberian market, noting that this will uplift farmers’ living standard.

The Agriculture Minister made the statement Wednesday when he launched the Feed the Future Liberia Agribusiness Development Activity (LADA) in the Monrovia suburb of Sinkor.

He indicated that the LADA project which is estimated about US$20 million will be implemented over a five-year period with the United States Government’s intervention to boost Liberia’s agricultural sector.

He stressed that the project will be implemented by Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture (CNFA), an international body whose goal is to increase private sector investment in Liberia’s agribusiness sector.

Minister Zinnah emphasized that the LADA project will expand access to quality agricultural input, financing, mechanization, extension services and markets to strengthen food security and increase incomes for Liberian smallholder farmers.
