According to President Kikwete, "Many African governments have not been able to realize agricultural revolution by 100 per cent complicating efforts to eradicate poverty due to financial constraints." Under his administration, Tanzania is "determined to fight poverty and has given priority to agriculture to help improve people's lives."
In the President's view, the best way to implement productive agriculture is through: mechanization that includes the modernized technology; improvement of water services; and the creation of access to reliable markets.
