Hi,

Please advise, is the word "promote" correct here? In other words, they want water to be classified as a strategic material.

Thanks,

A.

They emphasize that this government as the first promotes water to a strategic raw material and want to protect it for the future generations.

    I think "promote" is a good verb here.
    I would prefer to say "...promotes water to the status of strategic raw material...

    Or "elevate" , or "raise", but I think I would use "raise".

    The defense department raised the readiness to DEFCON 1, let the shooting begin.:)
