Agric sector needs regulatory body – Chamber

The President of the Chamber of Agribusiness, Anthony Morrison, has argued about the need for a regulatory body to supervise activities of the agriculture sector as it is with other sectors of the economy.

Morrison believes the Ministry of Food and Agriculture has become too huge to take on all the country’s growing agricultural demands for which reason such a framework was needed, if the country was serious about putting agriculture and agribusiness back on the map of performing sectors.
