Contribution to this project in the form of an EU donation is essential to strengthen the capacities of the different actors of the agricultural sector, especially in dairy and marine aquaculture sectors, according to the statement.
All participants expressed their desire to see this model of dialogue become well established in the future in order to calmly approach other issues involving the agricultural sector and small business in general.
Worse still, it is apparent that the government has no long-term plan to prop up the agricultural sector which has been impacted by the apathy of the authorities, drought, unseasonal rains, rising costs and corrupt control exerted by middle men.
On sidelines of the agreement signature, Mujawar and Hassan discussed the bilateral cooperation aspects between Yemen and FAO, as well as the support areas for the agricultural sector development as an important resource for the food security.
To give you an outlook for the end of this year: by December, the Ministry of Agriculture will have a strategy for 2015-2019; import and export capacities of the agricultural sector will be further enhanced through strengthening the Ministry's plant and animal quarantine services and through support to the laboratory in Kafarchima with the objective to receive its ISO certification.
