Cultivation and marketing of medicinal plants are an opportunity for the development of rural economies, as products that are easily orientated towards export.
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Niko Peleshi, brings a success story, while fostering the cultivation of medicinal herbs.
He brings Gjovalin’s example from Malesia e Madhe, who did not even think he would occupy the American market when he started working as a medicinal plant cultivator.
After 4 years he cultivates 80 ha and has 30 employees. Its production goes all the way to America and the desire to grow is still like in the first day.
