The head of the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture, Water and Marshlands, Salam Al-Shammari, confirmed, on Sunday, that the agricultural sector will be activated to be a real source of the country's revenues.
Al-Shammari said in a statement that Mawazine News received a copy of, that "the first conference / planted in Iraq .. made in Iraq / appeared today under the dome of Parliament and in the presence of the relevant sector ministries, veterinary unions, agricultural engineers, agricultural societies, fish and poultry producers and investors."
He added, "The aim of the conference is to proceed with outputs that support the agricultural sector in all joints, the most important of which are strategic crops, wheat, barley, and corn.
We have reached self-sufficiency and we have announced the export of crops and are continuing to support other joints of the animal revolution, such as broiler chickens, table eggs, fish, fruits and vegetables, in order to advance the resources of the agricultural sector as a resource."
My rights are like in one of the neighboring countries, where it reached 44 percent of agricultural and 56 percent of oil, and this sector must be exploited with the presence of the two rivers, the fertility of the country's land, and a very smooth environment for agricultural investment in order for Iraq to be a source not an importer during the next few years.
He pointed out, "One of the goals of the conference is to absorb the surplus of local agricultural products, such as tomato, for example, in the manufacturing industries and not to drop their prices sharply." Ended 29 / h
