Brazil, Africa and Latin America United by Food and Agriculture Accords

    Friday, March 10, the last day of the 2nd International Conference on Agrarian Reform and Rural Development, Brazil signed several international cooperation agreements in the areas of agriculture and food, with African and Latin American countries.

    The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) signed the "Regional Qualifying Program on Property Regime and Land Management and Associated Legal Aspects."

    Mozambique, Angola, São Tomé and Prí­ncipe, Guinea Bissau, Cape Verde, Portugal, and Brazil will participate in the agreement with FAO. The Organization intends to develop works related to land registration, property demarcation, conflict management and juridical aspects involved. Program resources will come from FAO, and its operations headquarters may be established in Cape Verde.

    Brazilian Ministry of Development and the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fishing of the Republic of Benin also signed a memorandum of understanding, which establishes cooperation in the rural development area, including training of researchers and producers, and transferring of technology. The agreement is the result of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s trip to Benin in February.

    The governments of Brazil and Paraguay, and the company Itaipu Binational also signed a protocol of intentions to establish a partnership for rural development in the border region between both countries.

      What a lie, what an exxageration…again
      “Mozambique, Angola, São Tomé and PrÀ­ncipe, Guinea Bissau, Cape Verde, Portugal, and Brazil will participate in the agreement with FAO.”

      All these countries dont represent AFRICA OR LATAM….THEY ARE ONLY S MALL PART OF AFRICA AND LATAM !!!!!



      Clean your dirty house FIRST and dont try to also export everything you do wrong on wealth inequality, land reform, corruption, vote buying, hunger, poverty just to name a few !
