World Bank recommends Brazil's agriculture pattern for Africa

Farmers_flickrThe World Bank is helping African states benefit from a series of easily-adaptable Brazilian agriculture patterns

It recently organised a video meet between Ghana, Liberia, South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya and Zambia to present the experience of Brazilian corporations in the field of agriculture.

Similarities between geophysical characteristics of both countries have led the World Bank to take this step.

Andre Nepomuceno Dusi, projects coordinator for the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA), said, "The Brazilian government is committed to help develop agricultural capacity of African countries, especially those in the sub-Saharan region."

Experts have said that Brazil could become a "highly-effective" partner in supporting African nations in their efforts to achieve a new pinnacle in agricultural success.

The idea of a stronger Africa-Brazil linkage has been further reinforced by the increase in number of missions from Africa to Brazil in recent years.
