FAO's 29th Latin America & Caribbean conference in Caracas April 24-28

Chinese People's Daily: The United Nations's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) will hold its 29th conference on the Latin America and Caribbean region in Caracas on April 24-28, an FAO official said on Monday.

Elisa Panades, the FAO representative in Venezuela, said the meeting would focus on land policy to help boost rural development, but it would also touch on other issues including regional challenges in the food and agriculture field.

At the closing session, experts will release a final report and set a date for the 30th regional meeting.

Panades praised the FAO projects in Venezuela, especially the Special Food Security Program, the largest in the region and the second largest in the world.

The program supports 16 organic farms, 10 intensive orchards and over 2,700 square meters of hydroponic farming by local families in Venezuela.

The conference is the largest regional gathering organized by the FAO. It meets every two years, drawing together agriculture ministers from 33 Latin American and Caribbean countries.
