The second phase according to the Minister was, “underpinned by the national development strategy document.”

"At the end of this workshop, Cameroon will have an excellent tool for economic and political steering in the rural sector", noted Dr. Athman Mravili, Food and Agricultural organization’s-FAO representative in Cameroon.

According to Tobias Ondoa Manga, the coordinator of the technical secretariat of the rural sector, agriculture needs to be reintegrated into the educational system so as to empower players in its field. These were his words, “We have to integrate agriculture into the education system because it is one of our strengths and therefore we have to be able to empower the players in the field.” He added that these players must “also be equipped with farm management.” reported Cameroon Tribune.

“We must also improve the production environment otherwise everyone will encourage young people to stay in the villages because they will have the means to earn a living” the coordinator added.
