Lashley talks food security
PLANT MORE TREES that produce fruits that can be consumed or turned into products.
Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth Stephen Lashley was speaking during the launch of the National Productivity Council’s Planting Pride Initiative at Crystal Gardens, The Glebe, St George, yesterday.
“We are aware that food security is an important aspect of our national development and every opportunity that we get, we must encourage our country to get back to the traditional practice of growing our own food to reduce the food import bill,” he said.
He added it was critical given the context of recent national discussion about the state of the economy and low levels of productivity. (LK)
