President Embarks on Agricultural Tour

The President of the Republic of The Gambia is currently on a nationwide tour to assess firsthand the progress of dry season agricultural activities and the state of preparedness for rainy season cultivation in the context of The Gambia’s food self-sufficiency drive.

President Jammeh has declared 2016 as the target year for rice self-sufficiency. The Vision 2016 launched in 2013, not only serves as a catalyst for the eradication of hunger, but also will ensure that Gambians depend on homegrown produce for their own wellbeing.

The tour which started on May 4th is scheduled to end on May 30th, 2015.
