Good news today, we are honoured that the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Ir. Mariano Assanami Sabino, has requested to visit Suai MCE-A co-operatives growing SRI rice this week. Suai is a district that often faces food shortages and has been badly flooded recently. The government department is exploring the possibility of working with MCE-A on planting 100 hectares of SRI rice in Baucau and 100 hectares in Suai, but its still early days yet. More and more, it is becoming accepted that the people want and need a Timor local rice market so they can buy and sell their own local produce rather than imports.
