  • Description

    M. JEAN REY, PRESIDENT OF THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET COMMISSION AND HIS WIFE, WHO ARE ON AN OFFICIAL VISIT TO CONGO-KINSHASA, VISITED A GAME RESERVE AND A COOPERATIVE RECENTLY.

    THEY WERE ACCOMPANIED BY M. MARCHEL BAHIZI, VICE-MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS, AND M. VICTOR NJOLI, HIGH COMMISSIONER OF CULTURAL AFFAIRS AND TOURISM, AND MR. PETER GLASS OF THE EUROPEAN DEVELOPMENT FUND.

    AT GOMA, IN THE NORTH OF KIVU PROVINCE, THEY WERE GREETED AT THE AIRPORT. THEY THEN WENT ON A TOUR OF THE GAME RESERVE AT PARC ALBERT. M. REY WAS IMPRESSED BY THE GREAT VALUE TO TOURISM AND SCIENCE THAT THE PARK PLAYS IN THE COUNTRY'S ECONOMY.

    THE PARTY THEN WENT ON TO LAKE EDWARD TO SEE A LOCAL COOPERATIVE IN OPERATION. HERE, FISH CAUGHT BY THE FISHERMEN OF VITSHUMBI IS PROCESSED. THIS IS A BIG CONTRIBUTION BOTH TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE REGION AND IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE USE OF MODERN TECHNIQUES; AND IN LINE WITH THE IDEAS OF THE EUROPEAN DEVELOPMENT FUNDS.
