18. Support required from the President

Critical support required in three areas


What We Require from the President to Succeed


1. Chair the Agricultural Transformation Implementation Council and be the Face of Change

Due to the complexities involved in an agricultural transformation, no agricultural transformation has succeeded without the President being the face of change, e.g. Malawi, Thailand, India, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana e.t.c

2. Utilize your influence

 Leverage influence to generate support from other MDAs, legislature and state governments to support new policies and align investments.

3. Enable rapid change

 Provide special facilities and dispensations for rapid decision making and execution of transformation
