Venezuela has announced a donation of a total of $5 million, or nearly 3 billion CFA francs, in order to contribute to agricultural development in 10 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, including Cameroon.
Other countries receiving the gift are Guinea, Benin, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania and Uganda, said the Chinese news agency Xinhua.
This funding, we learn, will be used to implement agricultural development projects, mechanization, mechanisms of improved seeds and agricultural processing.
As a reminder, Venezuela, a Latin American country known more for its oil production, is not itself an agricultural matters lightning war. Thanks to the oil boom, the country imports most of its food, mainly from the United States and Colombia.
