Tanzania: Chief Secretary Counsels Nane Nane Exhibitors

Dodoma — CHIEF Secretary, Ambassador Ombeni Sefue has urged exhibitors at the Nane Nane exhibitions to ensure that farmers get technical information are kept in touch.

Amb. Sefue said this shortly after he had made a tour of the pavilions on Thursday evening here, where he hailed organizers for wonderful pavilions.

He noted that farmers would wish to get information and ask question anytime even after the Nane Nane has passed and thus they should be kept in touch.

"Exhibitors should ensure that farmers and livestock keepers are provided with contacts just in case they want to ask for clarification on some matters after these exhibitions have ended," he said.

Amb. Sefue added that the fact that some exhibitors were selling out seeds to farmers, they should also make sure that they are available when farmers want to get some clarification when they want to plant.

He hailed this year's theme which states that "Big Results Now: Agriculture and Livestock is Business" adding that the exhibitions have vividly shown that the two sectors are a real business and can pull people out of poverty.

He emphasised on the need to go modern when it comes to farming or livestock keeping as way of increasing value and ensuring profit.
