Description
Announced that, as part of its efforts to stimulate continued growth in the local rice industry, it planned to put in place a crop insurance programme, purchase 40 000 tonnes of rice from the local market, or an equivalent paddy amount, and re-habilitate 1 500 hectares for cultivation. These efforts would be further to ongoing support programmes and a planned imposition of greater border protective measures.
