Singapore (VNA) – Singapore will convert the rooftops of nine multi-storey carparks into farms to grow vegetables and other food crops to meet domestic demand.

The Singapore Food Agency and the Housing Board (HDB) said on May 12 that the project is one of the strategies adopted by the SFA to realize Singapore’s 30 by 30 goal, which aims to produce 30 percent of the country's nutritional needs locally by 2030.

The project is slated to begin in the latter half of 2020, and the farms will be up for tender for a term of three years.

According to the SFA, it will continue working with the HDB to expand the project.

Singapore currently imports more than 90 percent of its food supply./.
