Speaking at the opening speech hon. Hussein Mohamedi Bashe (Mp) Deputy Minister Ministry of Agriculture says the theme “The 4th Industrial Revolution: Implications for Agricultural and Agro-Processing Development in Africa”. Is very timely to the country’s aspiration of attaining the middle-income economy by 2025 under the current administration led by H.E. President Dr. John Pombe Magufuli.

As we all know, like in many other parts of Africa, agriculture is an imperative sector to Tanzania’s economic growth and development. Since independence, the government has in various ways been providing a special attention in developing the sector. For example, the government is currently implementing a five – year second phase of the Agricultural Sector Development Programme (ASDP II). This is the roadmap for the agricultural sector development for the next 5 years.

Hon. Hussein Mohamedi Bashe (Mp) Continue to says that history tells us that the industrial revolution paradigm has gone through four phases hitherto. While the first three phases where driven by steam and water energy, electricity, and ICT respectively, the fourth phase is driven by technological innovations such as automation and chemical manufacturing.

The fourth industrial revolution calls for agricultural transformation from traditional farming to agro-processing, value addition and manufacturing to meet the fast growing global food demand. Such transformation however, should go parallel with the development of other sectors of the economy such as energy, education, infrastructure and trade. The current government is very much into making sure agricultural transformation is interwoven with other sectors of the economy. Apparently, the government is constructing an exemplary hydroelectric power-generating dam on which the agriculture sector will largely leverage. The government is also constructing standard gauge railway that has a direct bearing on agricultural distributive efficiency.

Hon. Hussein Mohamedi Bashe (Mp) Deputy Minister Ministry of Agriculture at the end of the speech says that, I therefore believe you will do justice to science and practice as you critically discuss the submitted papers It is my hope that this conference will come up with relevant recommendations to help the government make informed decisions and polices. I assure you that the Ministry of Agriculture will continue to closely working and valuing your research contribution to the development of the nation’s economy.
