The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry is committed to putting stronger measures in place to conserve agricultural lands, notably those located nears dams, weirs and along irrigation channels. Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Mr Vilayvanh Phomkhe was responding to a question raised by National Assembly (NA) members at the ongoing NA session recently.
NA members found that many hectares of agricultural land have been converted into other classifications, in particular those located nearby irrigation systems. The NA members were concerned that the conversion issue could affect agricultural production and food security in Laos.
