DA, France sign cooperation deal on agri sector
The Philippine Department of Agriculture (DA) and France Ministry of Agriculture and Food has finally forged a deal that will push them to extend cooperation on how to develop their respective agriculture sectors.
In a signing ceremony held last night, the Memorandum of Understanding on their Cooperation in the Agricultural Sector between France and the Philippines has been formally signed.
The ceremony is considered as the main event during the Philippines-France Forum on Agriculture.
Philippines and France particularly aim to come up with policy recommendations that will develop their respective agriculture sectors.
The two governments will likewise propose concrete, science-based leads and recommendations to policymakers on specific agricultural issues.
The collaboration will also create stronger synergy on new or existing research and experimentation, which may have the potential for R&D investments.
