Comprendre les enjeux de l'agriculture

In early July, African representatives traveled to Seoul to finalize the deployment arrangements for the K-Rice Belt program.
This project, with a budget of $80 million, is expected to generate an additional 10,000 tons of rice production by 2027 and will involve about ten African countries: Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Ghana, Cameroon, Uganda, Kenya, and Guinea-Bissau.
South Korea intends to continue the project beyond four years if the results prove to be successful. There is no doubt about the demand for rice in the region. In 2020, out of the 33 million tons consumed, 15 million tons were imported.
