As new investments in agriculture sector have increased, a new investment scheme is being implemented lately, the public-private partnership in funding and encouraging farmers to open new businesses.
Minister of Agriculture, Rural development and Water Management Edmond Panariti visited a new strawberries farm in Grabian, Lushnje. He said that, “this is one of the first serious investments in Albania’s agriculture, expecially in the growing of strawberries since it is proved that this can be a successful agricultural business for the locals. Our challenge now is to create a chain of values, in the context of learning how to cultivate this fruit, how to grow it, collect it, the packaging process and finally its export.”
In his words, Panariti said that the main goal is the diversification of agricultural and livestock production in order to meliorate the import-export balance.
He further added that Lushnja district provides great potentials and that new investments will be soon implemented in this area.
