  • Description

    Thirty African countries and France--representing her overseas territories the area--are attending the Sixth Regional Conference for Africa of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Association (FAO) in Algiers.

    The 9-day Conference began on the 25th of September, and among the speakers are Mr. Moise Mensah, representing Dahomey, and Mr. Bukar Shaib, representing Algeria.

    Mr. Mensah's statement was in the form of a draft resolution covering the full scope of the FAO's activity in coming years. Mr. Shaib spoke of the culture development of the FAO African Region.

    On Wednesday (September 30), the FAO urged African countries during the session at Algiers to put more effort into research to help boost the yield on their farmland.

    It put forward a programme on how to promote this research, suggesting the strengthening of National Agricultural research centres, and the holding of sub-regional conferences for the Guinean and Eastern zones.

    The FAO propose developing in each country close co-operation among all countries engaged in agricultural research. An iter-African Research Commission should be set up, and there should also be a network of national documentation centres connected with the FAO's computerised information system for the African region.

    Mr. Mensah of Dahomey spoke in French. Mr. Shaib in English
