Egypt’s Prime Minister (PM) Moustafa Madbouli partook earlier Wednesday in the 10th edition of the African Day for food and Nutrition Security (ADFNS) conference, hosted for the first time ever in Cairo, under the patronage of President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.
The two-day landmark event is held under the theme of “Towards Ending Hunger in Africa: Leveraging New Agricultural Technologies for Improved African Diets”.
The conference activities kicked off yesterday, in the attendance of around 55 African agriculture ministers and food experts.
The ADFNS 2nd-day session is attended by Egypt’s health, endowments, immigration, higher education, supply, and trade ministers.
The conference aims at discussing opportunities and initiatives to increase access to science in agriculture, as well as public policies on nutrition and food support. In addition, the conference will also tackle food and poverty issues inside the black continent.
The 1st day of the event addressed several topics including; malnutrition, adopting technology and research to develop the agriculture process, which reflected on the increase of production, in addition to taking advantage of Egyptian experiences and expertise to improve agriculture in African countries.
Noteworthy, Egypt, and Africa enjoy strong and deep relations. Egypt’s location in the North East of Africa makes it Africa’s gate to Asia, Europe and North, and South America.
