North Africa: Nation Bids to House North-African Farmers Network Headquarters

Tunis — The African-Maghreb Farmers Forum will support Tunisia's bid to house the North-African Farmers Network, Maghreb Farmers Union Chairman Mohamed Alioui said.

He added, at the end of his meeting on Tuesday with Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali, that 46 African countries, including the Maghreb countries, Egypt, Sudan and Senegal, are taking part in this forum organised on November 12-14, in Tunis.

The forum's recommendations will serve as a roadmap for developing Africa's farming sector, he pointed out.

He said that the meeting with the Prime Minister had turned on price rises of agricultural products, food security and hardships facing agriculture in Africa.
