[No. 54] The CAAKUB began to purchase domestic rice from the farmers in Maliana I

The CAAKUB farmers association, to whom the Project have supported, started to purchase rice from the farmers in Maliana I on June 1, 2020 and will continue the purchase operation for several months.

Based on the last year's operation experiences, the CAAKUB, Department of Agro-Commerce of Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and the Project make the CAAKUB's business plan for this year in order to strengthen their rice business both financially and operationally.

This year the CAAKUB will purchase the rice accordingly with the plan and sell it in the Farmers Markets in Dili.

It is expected that the purchase of rice by the private sector will be strengthened and that farmers will be more motivated to produce and sell rice.
