Government ministries, agencies challenged to exhibit


GOVERNMENT ministries and agencies have been challenged to exhibit during agricultural shows. The challenge came from the Permanent Secretary for Manicaland Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Mr Edgars Seenza in his as Guest of Honour at the official opening of Chipinge Agricultural Show on 16 September 2023 in Chipinge.

The fourth edition of Chipinge Agricultural Show took place from 14-16 September this year and ran under the theme: “Going for Agricultural, Industrial and Economic growth.”

“As I was inspecting the stands, I noticed that a few government ministries and agencies have exhibited here. I challenge them to consider exhibiting in future shows. How can the good work that the Government is doing be publicized to the public if ministries and agencies don’t exhibit their work?” he said.

The Permanent Secretary also challenged the business community to respond to the need of the farmers. He urged business to take advantage of the agro products that are grow in Chipinge and add value to them as a means of increasing the Gross Domestic Product of Manicaland.
