  • Description

    Fifty Ghanaians are taking part in a two-month training course on farm management. It is being run by three agricultural experts from Israel -- Mr. Abraham Reiss, Mr. Dan Frunkin, and Mr. David Ariel.

    The trio are attached to the Ghana Agriculture Ministry during their stay, which is the result of a co-operation agreement over agriculture between the two nations.

    SYNOPSIS: A special training course in farm management has begun at the Kwadaso agricultural college at Kumasi in Ghana. I's the result of co-operation between Ghana and Israel, which is supplying the three instructors.

    Lieutenant Colonel E.A. Baidoo, the Ashanti Region Commissioner, and Israeli Ambassador Abraham Cohan were at the opening.

    There are fifty students on the course, which will last two months. The aid from Israel comes at a time when several African states have just broken off their relations with Israel. But Israel still maintains a presence in 27 African countries.

    Ambassador Cohen recalled a speech made by Israel's Prime Minister, Mrs. Golda Meir, to the United Nations in 1960. She said then that the cry going out from the African and Asian continents was "share with us not only your food but also your knowledge of how to produce it."
