The Minister of Agriculture, Muhammad Karim Al-Khafaji, confirmed, on Friday, that the country possesses 30 million dunams of suitable agricultural land, and the agricultural lands that have been bulldozed are estimated at 110 thousand dunams.
"The militarization of society and the increase in purchasing power and importation were reasons for migration from the countryside to the city," Khafaji said in a televised interview with "Al-Eqtisad News".
He added, "Agriculture began to rise after the agricultural initiative and the issuance of the Consumer Protection Law, and now we have almost self-sufficiency in table eggs and chickens."
"The recovered from the agricultural initiative so far has reached 900 billion out of two trillion, and I will not tolerate any agricultural loan that has a suspicion of corruption," Khafaji said.
The Minister of Agriculture indicated that "the weakness of the law and the increase in purchasing power have led to the bulldozing of agricultural lands, and the bulldozed agricultural lands are estimated at 110 thousand dunams, while we have 30 million dunums of suitable agricultural land."
