He highlighted the star agroexport products, such as blueberries, avocados, mangoes, grapes, and others, which are taking the world's main markets by storm. "The goal of the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation is to find markets and make agriculture a profitable activity and we must therefore not only reach internal markets but also external markets. We are committed to producers in the Andean areas, which can consequently earn more income," he stated.
