FAO, MOA Sign US$438k Technical Agreement
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, February 28 (LINA) – The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) have signed a US$438,000 Technical Cooperation Agreement to train women and youth in vegetable and poultry production.

The FAO Country Representative, Mr. Marc Abdala, signed on behalf of the UN agency, while Dr. Charles McClain, MOA Deputy Minister for Planning and Development, signed on behalf of the Ministry.

Speaking at the signing ceremony Tuesday held at the FAO head office in Monrovia, FAO’s Abdala said the project is a result of a request to the FAO by the Liberian Government.

He expressed delight over the agreement, noting that it will go a long way in empowering women and youth in vegetable and poultry production.

In remarks, Deputy Agriculture Minister McClain lauded the FAO for the agreement, noting that Liberians will now be able to take over the project after FAO has turned it over to the Liberian Government.
