  • Description

    The Ghana Commissioner for Agriculture Colonel Frank George Bernasko told a London Conference on world food supplies on Thursday (2 May) that mankind was haunted by the spectre of world starvation.

    Colonel Bernasko told delegates that by 1980 the number of young people leaving the schools of the world could have gone up by an additional 180-million.

    "These will be hungry, angry, discontented people. This is a global problem and needs a global solution", he said.

    The previous day Dr. A.H. Boerma, Director General of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organisation told the conference, organised by the Financial Times newspaper and British Airways, that by the middle of the year food stocks will probably equal only three weeks world consumption. it was essential for developing countries to increase their own production and be in a position to hole reserve stocks.
