WINDHOEK - The Livestock Producers Organisation’s congress on October 9, the Namibian Agricultural Union’s congress on October 11 will both look at pushing growth in the agricultural sector telling by their common theme: Ignite growth in agriculture – the basis for job creation and value addition.
The main purpose of the NAU congress is to create an opportunity for the agricultural sector in Namibia to discuss joint issues as well as to provide information to agricultural producers that can be expected in terms of the agricultural economy, prices and markets in the future. The main occupation of the congress will be brainstorming and developing ideas to fuel growth in the agricultural sector. If the primary sector is not growing, no additional jobs can be created to benefit the rural economy. Thus, emphasis will be on identifying low production factors in the livestock, agriculture, wildlife and other sectors and to boost such to spur future growth.
It is an open day for any producer (small, medium or large scale) and any agricultural product as well as other role players in the agricultural sector. For any inquiries or to RSVP, Rina Hough can be contacted at the NAU office - 061-237838 or email@example.com.
The cost for the day is N$ 650 and includes a full day’s refreshments and lunch.
