On agriculture, the governor pledged to work with them for the production of organic products that will meet the European requirements by assisting farmers to develop their production.
Senator Bala expressed confidence that the move would improve extension service in agriculture and pledged to provide enabling environment for effective implementation of the investors projects in the state.
Earlier, the team leader, Mr Fabian Bidan said the team would establish skill acquisition centers in the state for youth development and improve the agricultural sector.
