Agriculture exhibition inaugurated in Herat

Agriculture and Livestock Minister Asif Rahimi launched a 3-day exhibition of agricultural products in Herat city.

The exhibition is held to help meet the demands of the farmers who had called on the government for support to promote their products.

Zenab, one of the rare women, participated in the exhibition with the hope to see Afghanistan products making its way to foreign markets. She had brought to display various fruits from Herat.

The 50 year old Zenab was delighted to be given this platform to help her become one of the successful businesswomen of Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, a farmer named Mohammad Nadir Farzad said the exhibition is not sufficient to protect Afghan’s agriculture market. The government must prevent imports of agricultural products.

The farmers have always criticized the government for its failure to support farmers in competing against foreign markets.

Addressing the farmers concerns, Minister Rahimi said that the farmers should compete with foreign markets by striving to meet the international standards in terms of packing their products.

Since the past decade, many farmers from Herat have left their farms and have moved to the city to seek better jobs.

Such rural migration has resulted in the loss of farming lands in various districts of Herat. The government has not been yet able to address this issue.
