Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has hailed partners including the World Bank, African Development Bank, Africa Rice and supportive Governments for their help in Liberia’s quest to achieve self-sufficiency in food production.

Vice President Boakai said Liberia also appreciates the entire United Nations system for the sustained interest and attention accorded Liberia in the Nation’s strive to achieve self-sufficiency in food production, supportive security measures, storage and trade.

VP Boakai spoke Thursday at programs marking World Food Day held at the Monrovia City Hall, saying “this forum is a critical dialogue that has the potential to lend impactful imprints on the lives of our people.”

He said Liberians should not hold back the much needed self-assessment of our agricultural policies and called for a thrust into a deep soul searching on this matter considering our distance away from the desired goal of producing what we eat and eating what we produce.

VP Boakai pointed out that “we must probe all aspects of options available in order to push forward on the issue of self-sufficiency, couple with increasing support to capacity building in agriculture and this must be done through research, training and extension.”

‘If we are to tackle poverty within the milieu of subsistence farming population, we must lend greater focus to enhancing their technical capacity in caring for their crop. This year’s World Food Day is being held under the theme, Social Protection and Agriculture: breaking the cycle of rural poverty.
