Agadir – The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) will continue developing its cooperation with Morocco notably for the implementation of the fisheries plan “Halieutis”, said FAO representative in Morocco Michael George Hage.
Speaking at a conference, held on the sidelines of the 4th International Fisheries Fair “Halieutis” which is being held in Agadir, Hage stressed his full readiness to develop and maintain collaboration between FAO and Morocco, and continue assisting the Kingdom to carry out the nationwide halieutis plan.
During the fair’s 4th edition, a technical cooperation project was inked by the UN agency and the national agency for aquaculture development (ANDA) to elaborate a strategy for boosting fish farming in Morocco.
The FAO will provide the ANDA with 200K dollars to help with the funding of the said project.
The 5-day fair, which features exhibitions, meetings, conferences and workshops, seeks to draw this year 300 national and foreign exhibitors and 50,000 visitors.
