Minister of Agriculture: “Turkey targets to become the leading country in agriculture”

Mr. PAKDEMIRLİ, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry has made a statement saying “Without doubt, agriculture will be the brightest sector of the future. The country that can feed the world will become the leading country. The way to succeed in doing this is to bring together agriculture and technology.

Pakdemirli said, “There is no doubt that the brightest sector of the future will be agriculture. The countries to feed the world will be leading countries as well.  Our farmers who used to plow their fields until a short while ago only, use the latest technology and increase their income each and every day. We now have farmers who use tractors, drones and sensors in their fields. This way, our farmer, who used to plow his field until yesterday, today uses the latest technology and adds to his earnings. We have farmers who use tractors, drones and sensors.”

The Minister went on to say, “We have rented land in Sudan and we will start farming there soon. We are the children of an established and mighty nation with a strong history. Just like the USA, China, Holland, France etc. we will be producing in various parts of the world, as insurance for our future”.

The Minister also said sugar was a national and strategic product for Turkey and speculative news made in this regard did not reflect the truth. He underlined that all of the sugar needed by the public was produced domestically and said, “We have made a significant progress in sugar production as Turkey and in fact we are even exporting sugar to Syria and Iraq”.
