We agreed to work together to reinforce cooperation between our two countries especially in the domain of agriculture. We believe agriculture and rural development are very important for all countries," the Chinese Diplomat said.

China is a friendly nation which has made so much progress in the domain of agriculture and we are engaged in reinforcing our cooperation to make it more fruitful and successful. We are available and ready to transfer technological skills in rice cultivation and other areas. We have a wide range of cooperation activities in the agro sector and we need to discuss and decide priority areas of cooperation," he pointed out; noting that through the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), China has put in place many actions that would develop agriculture on the continent because it is a key.
