  • Investing in food security, improving quality, diversifying and developing local products. In this context, it is planned that the financial support of the State for agricultural and rural development will increase from 200 billion dinars at present, to 300 billion dinars per year for the new five-year period
  • Develop the irrigation system: the irrigated areas will be doubled to reach, by 2019, 25% of cultivated land, i.e. 2 million hectares under irrigation.
