Nyusi launches agricultural marketing campaign in Mozambique

Last week, Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi launched the 2022/2023 agricultural marketing campaign in the district of Marracuene. The marketing target for this year is slightly more than 17 million tons of assorted crops. Root crops will be accounting for 45 per cent, vegetables 13 per cent, pulses 11 per cent, oilseeds four per cent and miscellaneous other crops 20 per cent.

Nyusi urged that the present marketing campaign should bring immediate results in generating income for rural households, and in improving the well-being of Mozambicans, as fundamental objectives of his governance.

Statistics quoted by Nyusi show that in 2020, Mozambique exported agricultural produce valued at 604.2 million dollars, but agricultural imports into Mozambique were over 50 per cent higher, at 998.5 million dollars.

"This means that we recorded a negative trade balance in agriculture of over 394 million dollars," he stressed. And among the products contributing to the negative balance were onions and potatoes.
