AGRICULTURE AS A NECESSARY FACTOR FOR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES(NIGERIA)

25 Jul

The basic,reason why some developing
countries are still in the lower region of
development today is not necessarily because
they lack resources but that they fail to utilise
and maximise them. Amongst such resources
available to some developing countries is
agriculture.
Agriculture though limited to some developing
countries is the basis upon which a lot of
industries can evolve. First of all it starts with
the Agro-alied industries whose major raw
materials are from Agriculture. And as we
know the Agro-alied industries will require
machines which will necessitated the need for
mechanical industries. Its also obvious that
social amenities like Electricity,transport
mediums(good roads, airports,railways and
well dredged water bodies), Health amongst
others will find their way into the host society
either through the public sector or the private
sector.
The rising industries generate revenue for the
government due to taxation and the
companies exportation process helps bring
about a positive balance of payment
Security also becomes a priority in such an
area because of need for protection of the
companies machines and even private
properties
Employment is not left out as both skilled
(educated) and unskilled(uneducated) labour
are required by the companies for either
production,management,distribution and
maintenance
Talking about service industries,the media is
bound to improve to facilitate information to
the external societies. Hotels and restaurants
of international standards are built to meet
the demand of foreign investors who may visit
such areas and even education is bound to
improve.
All this owe their credit to agriculture but
how many countries are viewing agriculture
from this angle? Agriculture is a neccesity for
any developing country that supports it to
reach the level of being called developed.
