The Agriculture and Commercial Show has proved to be one of the most effective tools suitable for passing Agricultural information from experts to farmers.

Government has equally recognised and appreciated the roll the Show Society is playing in fulfilling its agenda on Agriculture.

Agriculture and Livestock Minister Wilber Simusa says Government relies on the Show society to help transmit and actualize government’s desire and make it a reality.

Mr. Simusa said this when he paid a courtesy call at the society offices at the ongoing 88th Agriculture and Commercial show.

Mr. Simusa further says there is need for total participation from all stakeholders ion the Agriculture sector if the country is to fully benefit from it.

The Minister later toured some stands in the Pioneer hall where all the ten Provinces under the Ministry of Agriculture are exhibiting their agricultural products.

Meanwhile, Society Vice President, Ben Shoko says the Society is overwhelmed with remarks by the Minister.

He adds that the society acts as a meeting place where linkages for all Agriculture stakeholders are created.

Mr. Shoko, who also shower convener, says the society never saw itself to be so close to Government to receive such commendations.

He has described the remarks by the Minister as motivation to the society to work even harder.

The 88th Agriculture and Commercial Show which closed on Monday 4th August has been commemorated under the theme: 2014, breaking new grounds and commemorating 50 years of Zambia’s Independence.

Over 17 countries across the globe participated at this year’s event.
