Delegate from the FAO to Present at "Fresh Agro-Mashov" 2012

Mr. Israeli, together with Ms. Tamar Ziv from the Israeli Embassy in Rome and the Israeli representative at the FAO, the food and agricultural organization of the UN, met with Mr. Shivaji Fandey, director of the department for plant protection at the FAO.

At the meeting it was agreed that Dr. Nebambi Lutaladio will be a keynote speaker at the international conference that will take place as part of "Fresh Agro-Mashov" 2012. Dr. Lutaladio is from Nigeria and is a leading researcher at the plant protection and production department at the FAO. At the meeting it was also discussed to bring a large delegation of farmers from Africa to the exhibition.

This delegation will also participate in the opening session of the "Fresh Agro-Mashov" 2012 exhibition. It is important to note that the FAO provides assistance to farmers in Africa in many areas but particularly in agricultural projects and in capacity building among African farmers in terms of modern agricultural technologies. Dr. Lutaladio will speak on two topics. The first will be on agricultural development as a means for combating the food crisis and the second will be on the importance of the role of women in agricultural development in developing countries.
