From 27 to 29 November 2015 the city of Cacheu will host the third Guinea-Bissau Agricultural Fair organised by NGO Action for Development and financing of the European Union, said the non-governmental organisation in Bissau.

Sixty-two organisations and institutions, mainly from the region of Cacheu, in northern Guinea-Bissau, are taking part in the fair, as well as those from other areas of the country.

Over the three days that the fair will be held there will be presentations of innovative technologies and techniques that may benefit small-scale producers as well as debates on the main challenges facing modernisation of agriculture.

Italian non-governmental organisation “Associazione Interpreti Naturalistici del Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso e dei Monti della Laga Onlus” (AIN), agro-livestock cooperative Cooperativa Agro-Pecuária de Jovens Quadros de Canchungo and the Cacheu regional government are partnering the NGO Action for Development to organise the fair and carry out projects supported by the EU in the region.
