He said the region was hosting the event in recognition of the enormous contributions the region had made in the food production and supply value chain of the country.
In this regard, the region would have to justify the confidence reposed in it to host the celebration “by mobilising our collective and resources to achieve a well organised and successful event,” he said.
Dr Archibald Letsa further remindered the Municipal and District Assemblies that they had a greater role to play, by putting appropriate structures and systems in place to ensure that the city was maintained and kept clean.
