FSP Reform, 3rd Edition

Reports earlier this week that Government will next year liberalize the importation and distribution of agriculture inputs in the country. According to FSRP Director Chance Kabaghe the "government will subsidize the inputs by printing vouchers that would be distributed through out the country so that agro-dealers could easily get the voucher representing a certain amount from farmers and cash them at any bank...the two companies that used to get government tenders to distribute fertilizers will have to compete with others agro dealers to get the tenders". We have previously discussed FSP reforms here.
