The President received the Minister of Agriculture Beslan Dzhopua. They discussed the issues of development of agriculture of current importance.
The minister informed the President on preparation for planting vine on more than 230 hectares. It will be planted in the village of Akapa, Sukhum district and the village of Kuachara, Ochamchyra district. For that the ministry and the research institute of agriculture bought in Russia the vines suitable for local conditions.
Touching upon the conversations around agricultural projects from the side of the so-called "experts", the minister said that all fruit plantations had been planted on unused lands and neither tea, nor citrus plants had been uprooted. He added that if someone wants to be engaged in the tea industry, the ministry will only help.
‘People can see the things we do. They see what we do and can assess our actions’, the minister of agriculture said.
He added that no application from the citizens wishing to take part in the implementation of agricultural projects will be left unconsidered.
‘Our main task is to preserve the plantations we have planted. And in a couple of years we’ll have the results’, the President said.
