The visiting president of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) has commended Rwanda’s Agricultural sector for the progress it has achieved.
While addressing a press conference on Tuesday in Kigali, Kanayo Nwanze said that he has been very impressed by Rwanda’s progress.
“Rwanda is the first country I have managed to visit in eastern Africa, and according to my analysis and observation, it has done tremendous work in different ways in the agricultural sector, though they still have a long way to go”
He revealed that next year his organisation will finance projects that aim at increasing agro productivity estimated at US$40m.
He also noted that the overall objective of IFAD’s country programme is to empower rural people to participate in transforming the agricultural sector.
