The government of President Evo Morales Ayma decided to give its full support to the agro-ecological production as part of the Agricultural Revolution that began on last August 2nd. Faced with environmental organizations and members of his staff, President Morales promulgated the Law on Regulation and Promotion of Agricultural Production and non-timber green forest.
"When we talk about eco Bolivia we are talking about the sovereignty and security for humankind; producing organic products is not for the money but it is for life, talking about life, humanity” said the president.
The Government is promoting what he described as agrarian revolution and which has among its pillars redistributing land to peasant and indigenous communities, the mechanization of agriculture and organic agriculture.
"Bolivia is an organic component of the agrarian revolution. We raised an agrarian revolution and we bet on an eco Bolivia. And not only it is important to talk about organic products but also how to preserve the environment," said Morales.
