Mortada to Poultry Breeders Syndicate: Government support for agricultural sector necessary to withstand food crises

NNA - Caretaker Minister of Agriculture, Abbas Mortada, told the Poultry Breeders Syndicate that 'government support for the agricultural sector has become an urgent necessity to withstand the food crises afflicting the country,' stressing that 'the Ministry of Agriculture will be the permanent supporter of farmers.'

The syndicate delegation visiting Mortada complained about the 'unfair decisions issued by the Ministry of Economy, which suggest discretion in keeping subsidies, which inflicts unfairness on farmers and negatively affects consumers, with regard to high prices.'

For his part, the Minister asserted that 'the interest of the citizen is above all else, especially in light of the stifling economic crisis.'
