  • Description

    THE BELGIAN MINISTER FOR CO-OPERATION AND DEVELOPMENT, MR. RAYMOND SCHEYVEN, WAS IN KINGSHASA RECENTLY TO SIGN A TECHNICAL CO-OPERATION AGREEMENT WITH THE DEMOCRATIC CONGO REPUBLIC GOVERNMENT.

    HE WAS GREETED AT THE AIRPORT BY TWO CONGO MINISTERS, M. MUSHIETE AND M. MARCEL BAHIZI, AND THE BELGIAN AMBASSADOR, M. VAN DEN BLOCK.

    UNDER THE CO-OPERATION AGREEMENT BELGIAN EXPERTS WILL REORGANISE CONGO-KINSHASA'S NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF AGRONOMIC STUDIES AND THE MANAGEMENT OF ITS NATIONAL PARKS.

    M. SCHEYVEN EMPHASISED THAT BELGIUM WOULD ONLY TAKE CHARGE OF THE TWO DEPARTMENTS UNTIL CONGOLESE COULD TAKE OVER.

    THE PARKS HAVE BEEN MANAGED SINCE LAST YEAR BY A BELGIUM BIOLOGIST WHO SPECIALISES IN THE FLORA AND FAUNA OF AFRICA. THE AGREEMENT WAS SIGNED FOR CONGO KINSHASA BY M. BAHIZI, WHO IS THE DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER IN CHARGE OF TRADE.

    ANOTHER ITEM ON M. SOHEYVEN'S AGENDA WAS MEETING WITH THE KINSHASA EDUCATION AND AGRICULTURE MINISTER TO DISCUSS CO-OPERATION WITH THEIR DEPARTMENTS.
