SANGSAD BHABAN, March 12, 2014 (BSS)- Prime Minister and Leader of the House Sheikh Hasina today said her government has undertaken a Taka 58,000 crore master plan for the development of agricultural sector in 14 coastal districts.

"This master plan will be implemented during the period till 2021 by identifying 85 activities on the basis of four priorities- highest, high, medium and low," she said. 

The Leader of the House said the present government has framed the National Agriculture Policy 2013 for the development of agriculture and farmers as well to the greater improvement of the national economy. 

"The main goal of the policy is to achieve food autarky through producing more crops, ensuring food and nutrition for all by creating scopes for employment through diversifying agricultural programmes," she said adding that the government has taken various programmes to achieve the goal. 

The steps include training for farmers on seed-producing demonstration farms and tactics on producing quality seeds, uninterrupted supply of electricity in the Boro season, expansion
