According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, under the agreement, Angolan researchers will get technical assistance and short-term training from the Brazilian Agricultural Research firm Embrapa, which will contribute its experience after playing a key role in the successful national program developed in Brazil to curb hunger dramatically. In the opinion of FAO Deputy Director General for technical cooperation, Laurent Thomas, the availability of high skilled researchers and innovators, who understand the complex challenges of development, is essential to make great progress in agriculture and food security in Angola. “Brazil has a lot to offer in terms of proven technical experience, and this agreement is a milestone in South-South cooperation with Angola. We think this is an example to be followed by other countries from the South,” he stated.
