Description
Announced that FCFA 8 billion (USD 13 million) would be allocated to enhance access to credit and marketing of produce, with state entities henceforth also drawing supplies exclusively from local production. The initiative, part of the Government's self-sufficiency programme, also envisages infrastructural improvements, the provision of machinery and tax concessions and makes the issuance of import licences conditional on the purchase of local produce.
