As part of its new foreign policy, the micronation of Leylandiistan & Gurvata has announced that it will seek to create an intermicronational agricultural development pact.
So long as a micronation had taken active steps to develop a local agricultural sector, it would be welcomed into the pact according to Co-President Fionnbarra Ó Cathail. Through the pact, participating micronations would coordinate agricultural planning, share information on cultivation methods, and exchange seeds, among other initiatives.
“Over the past year, the government has worked to promote agriculture as the best step forward for the development of micronational economics,” said Cathail. “The great deal of interest shown in our activities last year … showed us that an opportunity for closer operation in this area existed.”
The announcement marked a progression of the government’s “Plan for 2016”, which included a complete reassessment of foreign policy as well as a programme to increase agricultural production.
