                Proclamation 8082 of November 8, 2006

                
National Farm-City Week, 2006

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Throughout our history, America's farmers and ranchers 
                have demonstrated the values of determination, faith, 
                love of family, and patriotism. The contributions of 
                America's farmers and ranchers help keep our economy 
                moving forward, and during National Farm-City Week we 
                underscore the vital partnership between America's 
                rural and urban industries.

                By providing raw materials, energy, and a safe and 
                healthy food supply, our farmers and ranchers help 
                enrich our lives and create economic opportunities 
                across our Nation. As good stewards of the land, they 
                help preserve the farming industry and way of life for 
                future generations.

                Farmers are playing an increasingly important role in 
                reducing our dependence on foreign oil by growing crops 
                such as soybeans and corn that can be used as 
                alternative sources of energy. Our agricultural sector 
                also cooperates with shippers, processors, marketers, 
                transporters, and others to make these vital goods 
                available to the public. My Administration is committed 
                to helping these dedicated individuals succeed, and we 
                must continue investing in agricultural research 
                programs, working to reduce tariffs and other trade 
                barriers, and opening up markets for American products 
                overseas.

                During National Farm-City Week, and throughout the 
                year, we honor the farmers, ranchers, and all those 
                working to build strong relationships between our rural 
                and urban communities. Our economy is strong and 
                growing, and behind the numbers are the stories of 
                hard-working Americans who help spur our economic 
                prosperity and feed our country and the world.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim November 17 through 
                November 23, 2006, as National Farm-City Week. I 
                encourage all Americans to join in recognizing farmers, 
                ranchers, and other professionals who work to produce 
                our agricultural abundance.
