Agriculture is the single largest employment-providing sector of the state and so is the key to socio-economic development in Odisha. Therefore, the Government lays special emphasis on the development of this sector through various interventions supported by a comprehensive, inclusive State Agriculture Policy, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said on Wednesday.
The CM was addressing an induction programme for 22 Assistant Agriculture Officers in state agriculture department. Besides, 53 officials also joined Odisha Cashew Development Corporation. An orientation was organized at the State Convention Centre in Lok Seva Bhavan. The CM said that Odisha is predominantly an agrarian economy with Agriculture and allied sector contributing nearly 21 percent to the gross state value added products in the state.
Congratulating the new officers on virtual platform, Naveen expressed hope that the State Agriculture Sector would be filled up with new energy and passion for service as young officers become part of its delivery mechanism. He advised the young officers to work with commitment following the 5T principles and hoped that their dedication would certainly boost the outcomes at field level.
