Agricultural cooperation

2006-09-21

Agriculture is a priority in China-Africa economic and technological cooperation.China has sighed agreements on agricultural and fishery cooperation with many African countries and has developed extensive and fruitful cooperation in this respect.

Since the 1960,China has helped over 40 African countries to build agro technology pilot or demonstration farms and promotion stations under nearly 200 cooperation programs and carried out 23 fishery cooperation projects with 13 African countries.

In addition, China has sent over 10,000 agro-technicians over the years to Africa to train local farmers and provide consultancy. Since the 1990s,the Chinese government has adopted active measures in terms of funds and policies to encourage and support competitive large agricultural enterprises, including private ones, to invest in Africa or develop diversified cooperation with their African counterparts. This has helped African counterparts. This has helped African countries to develop their agriculture, improve people's livelihood, and achieve economic and social progress.

Africa boasts abundant agricultural resources, while China is a big agricultural country with mature and applicable agricultural technologies. There are broad prospects for China-Africa agricultural cooperation.
