The Deputy Minister of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural
Resettlement, Vangelis Haritatos has lauded this year’s Agricultural Dealers and
Manufacturers Association of Zimbabwe (ADMA) Agrishow which was held a
mid this month at the Borrowdale Racecourse in Harare as a success.
“I had the privilege of meeting the Chairman of ADMA Mr Marco Garizio and
his team at the just ended ADMA Agrishow held at the Borrowdale Racecourse,
Harare. I must say I was extremely impressed and would like to congratulate
each and every exhibitor for making this year's event a bigger and better event
than ever,” posted Haritatos on his Facebook wall late in June.
The minister praised the Davies Events-organised exhibition for its wide range
of exhibits among other aspects.
“With the goal of allowing industry players and farmers to compare products
that offer cost-saving innovative advantages and concepts, I truly believe that
this year's ADMA Agrishow was an overwhelming success. An impressive
array of machinery, irrigation, storage systems, implements, tractors, combines,
cutting edge technology, modern engineering, tyre suppliers, service providers,
fertilizer suppliers, chemical suppliers, just to name a few, were on show,” said
the minister.
Haritatos was also impressed by the agricultural technology and innovation
which was in evidence at the exhibition.
“I was extremely happy and proud to see that we have a great deal of
technology that has been developed by local, innovative Zimbabweans. We
have huge potential as a nation, and can certainly manufacture a great deal of
agricultural implements and machinery locally,” he said.
The minister, cognisant of the role which is played by organisations such as
ADMA in mechanising agriculture invited the association to work with his
ministry in its bid to revive the country’s agricultural sector.
“I extended an invitation to Mr Garizio and his team to take advantage of my
office in our ministry to ensure that ADMA plays a pivotal role in our push to
bring agriculture back to its rightful position of driving our economy,” he said.
