Liberians Asked To Grow Their Own Food

The Minister of Commerce and Industry has asked Liberians to grow their own food and be able to eat what they produce in the wake of the World Bank's forecast of global price increase of food stuff.

Addressing the Ministry of Information, Culture Affairs and Tourism (MICAT) regular Thursday press briefing last week, the Commerce and Industry Minster Madam Miatta Beyslow disclosed the sad news that Liberia remains a food deficit Country because we import everything that we eat.

The Commerce Ministry boss intimated that only a third of this country's domestic consumption is home grown, noting that two third of Liberia's food is imported into the Country.
