Venezuela supports rice production in Guinea-Bissau

27 November 2015

Venezuela will support the production of rice and other grains in Guinea-Bissau, said Wednesday in Bissau the Venezuelan ambassador to Guinea-Bissau, at the end of an audience granted by President José Mário Vaz.

Ambassador Eddy José Cordova Corcega gave assurances that Venezuela would find mechanisms, which he did not detail, to support the production of rice, maize and sorghum as well as other agricultural products, to improve the diet of the Guinean population.

Corcega said the issue of support to Guinea-Bissau would be discussed further at the next Africa/South America summit, to be held in May 2016 in Quito, the capital of Ecuador, which the Guinea-Bissau head of state will attend. (macauhub/GW)
