  • Description

    THE GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CONGO HAS BEGUN A PROGRAMME TO ENSURE ITS TIMBER INDUSTRY REMAINS THE TOP MONEY EARNER. THE DIRECTOR GENERAL OF THE WORLD FOOD AND AGRICULTURE ORGANISATION, MR. ADDEKE BOERMA YESTERDAY ( WEDNESDAY ) OPENED A NEW FORESTRY TRAINING SCHOOL AT MANSIMOU NEAR BRAZZAVILLE.

    MR. BOERMA IS CURRENTLY ON AN EXTENSIVE TOUR OF AFRICAN NATIONS TO INSPECT F.A.O. PROJECTS. HE EXPRESSED GREAT SATISFACTION TO FIND THE FORESTRY PROGRAMME WELL CARED FOR AND SAID THAT HE WAS SURE THE ORGANISATION COULD FINANCE THE NECESSARY FOLLOWUP PROJECTS.

    TIMBER IS THE MAJOR SOURCE OF INCOME FOR THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC. MORE THAN HALF OF ITS FOREIGN INCOME IS DERIVED FROM TIMBER SALE. THE GOVERNMENT, FULLY REALISING THIS, HOPES THAT THROUGH PROJECTS LIKE THE ONE IN MANSIMOU, ENOUGH SKILLED PEOPLE WILL BE AVAILABLE TO EXPAND THE INDUSTRY.

    REPRESENTING THE GOVERNMENT AT THE OFFICIAL OPENING WERE THE MINISTER FOR AGRICULTURE, CAPTAIN DIAWARA, THE EXTERNAL AFFAIRS MINISTER, MR. ICKONGA AND THE MINISTER FOR EDUCATION, MR. LOPEZ.
