(MENAFN) Driven by concerns about food security and plans to enhance the role of small farmers and local businesses, Bahrain plans to triple domestic food in the coming years, Gulf Daily News reported.

Municipalities and Urban Planning Affairs Minister Dr Juma Al Ka'abi said the government aims to boost agricultural production from 20 percent to 60 percent in the next four years.

The ministry is planning to construct a green town in Manama and agricultural nurseries in A'ali, the minister said.

His statements came after attending the fourth consultative meeting of the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry with small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).

The minister also affirmed his keenness to reassure that he was willing to engage more with traders, who formed an integral part of Bahrain's economy.

A committee will be set up jointly with the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry to address complaints about municipal fees and commercial zoning.

The minister pledged his support for regular meetings and reassured traders of his personal involvement in resolving issues.
