Zimbabwe: Mugabe blames Western subsidies

President Mugabe has declared that rich countries’ agricultural subsidies and denial of market access to produce from developing countries were partly to blame for low crop production in developing nations, report AllAfrica. Addressing fellow Heads of State and Government at the Food and Agriculture Organization Summit, Mugabe added that other factors militating against global food security were climate change, inaccessibility to arable land, rising costs of farming inputs and general lack of money to finance farming operations. According to him “Western subsidies are suffocating farmers in poor and developing countries.”
