The training gives them the means to consider a maximum return in agricultural production and the planned workshops on how to transform agricultural products will exploit at best each crop.”
Rokhaya adds that means of transportation will counteract the remoteness and temporary isolation of the land, as in the near future, this rapidly expanding area will receive the necessary roads to connect it to the city center.
