29 October 2015

The Angolan Minister of Agriculture, Afonso Pedro Canga, said in New Delhi that India could contribute to the development of agriculture in Angola given its experience as one of the largest producers of agricultural products.

The minister was speaking on the sidelines of the 3rd India-Africa Summit taking place in the Indian capital, which is attended by a delegation from Angola.

“Angola needs to increase production to meet the growing needs of the population but also to export and India is available for this partnership,” he said.

The minister recalled that “India is a major agricultural power, it occupies one of the top places in grain production in the world, it has the technology, expertise and workers, and it is therefore advantageous for Angola to have a partnership for the development of agriculture and agro-industry.”

“Countries are interested in taking advantage of India’s ability and India is available to pass on its experience and knowledge as well as providing financial and technological support to agricultural development with mutual benefit,” Canga said. (macauhub/AO)
