Zimbabwe is moving in the right direction in terms of agriculture, said President Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday when he officially opened the Agricultural Dealers and Manufacturers Association (ADMA) AgriShow at the Borrowdale in Harare.

 “Agriculture occupies a primary sector of the economy,” said the President.

President Mnangagwa indicated that he had been surprised by the array of modern agricultural equipment on display at the exhibition.

“I’m extremely surprised and impressed by the quality of the modern agricultural equipment being exhibited here. It was as if one is not in Zimbabwe,” he said.

The President thanked ADMA for supporting Government’s on-going agricultural mechanisation programme by importing farming equipment.

“We should create an environment that ensures that those who are interested in the agricultural sector succeed,” the President said.

President Mnangagwa praised the relationship between Government and agricultural suppliers which he described as a win-win.

“We should nurture this win-win relationship where those who are talented are allowed to do well,” he said.

Regarding the status of Zimbabwe’s agricultural sector, the President highlighted that the country was on course.

“We are moving in the right direction in terms of agriculture,” said the President.
