Myanmar makes efforts to promote agricultural development

Myanmar is making efforts to promote the development of agricultural sector with long- and short-term plans being implemented for transformation of conventional farming into mechanized farming across the country.

Special emphasis is being placed to improve living standard of farmers and boost agricultural development. 

On the occasion of Saturday's Peasants Day, Myanmar President U Thein Sein, in his message, cited the private sector's active participation in the production of high yield and marketable quality of all crops.

He called on the government to increase agricultural loan to address the peasants' need of the injection of capital in the sector.

The president encouraged farm enterprises to shift from export of raw agricultural produce to quality product by establishing advanced rice mills, oil mills, refineries and packaging facilities.-The Philippine Star (March 03, 2013 2:00PM)
