Kennedy Round Project : Japan provides 4,787 tons of white rice to Togo

(Togo First) - Last Friday, Togo officially received almost 5,000 tons of rice from the Japanese government. The shipment which arrived at the Port of Lomé on December 31, 2018, falls under bilateral cooperation between Japan and Togo, and specifically in line with the Kennedy Round project.

The latter enables developing nations that face food shortages to get agricultural input and supplies, namely cereals (rice and wheat) for the most disadvantaged populations.

Worth more than CFA9.5 billion, the rice sent by Japan, once sold, should enable Togolese authorities to have funds required for various socioeconomic development projects.

These projects according to Togo’s minister of agriculture, Ouro-Koura Agadazi, include opening up rural areas by rehabilitating 150km of rural roads, building basic social infrastructures, carrying out sanitization initiatives in Lomé, and ensuring the efficient management of urban waste.
