  • Description

    THE 16TH CONFERENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCERS (FIPA) BEING HELD IN TUNIS, TUNISIA, HAS CALLED FOR MORE ECONOMIC AND TECHNICAL AID FOR AGRICULTURE IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. THE CONFERENCE, WHICH ENDS NEXT WEDNESDAY, WAS OPENED LAST MONDAY BY PRESIDENT HABIB BOURGUIBA OF TUNISIA.

    DELEGATES FROM 40 COUNTRIES ON FIVE CONTINENTS ARE ATTENDING THE CONFERENCE. AN OFFICIAL OF FIPA TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE I TUNIS YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) THAT, AS WELL AS MORE AID, THE DELEGATES WANT BETTER CONDITIONS FOR EXPORTS FROM DEVELOPING COUNTRIES TO DEVELOPED ONES, AND BETTER CO-ORDINATION OF THE AGRICULTURAL AND COMMERCIAL POLICIES OF RICH COUNTRIES.

    THE CONFERENCE HAS ALSO EXPRESSED ITS REGRET THAT GOVERNMENTS OF DEVELOPING COUNTRIES HAVE NOT GIVEN ENOUGH ATTENTION TO THE PROBLEMS OF SMALL CULTIVATORS. IT HOPES FOR IMPROVEMENT OF AGRICULTURAL OUTPUT BECAUSE POOR COUNTRIES' DEVELOPMENT PLANS ARE BEGINNING TO BEAR FRUIT AND BECAUSE OF PROGRESS ACHIEVED IN AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH.

    IN HIS OPENING ADDRESS ON MONDAY, PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA SAID THAT THE PLAN OF THE FOOD AND AGRICULTURE ORGANISATION (FAO) FOR SOLVING THE WORLD FOOD SHORTAGE PROBLEM WITHIN 20 YEARS WOULD BE WORKABLE PROVIDING DEVELOPING COUNTRIES MADE THE REQUIRED EFFORTS AND PROVIDED CLOSE, CONFIDENT AND FRUITFUL CO-OPERATION WAS ESTABLISHED BETWEEN THEM AND THE INDUSTRIAL COUNTRIES.
