Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation minister, Joseph Made said the team would spend 15 days in the country.
“This is a technical delegation doing a detailed feasibility study in the totality of the agricultural sector in investment, cropping and technological that is machinery and equipment that relates to irrigation and mechanisation,” said Made.
He said the delegation was a follow up to a team that visited two years ago.
