Kingdom, Cuba to sign agriculture MoU

Cambodia's Ministry of Agriculture plans to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with its Cuban counterpart “to establish a comprehensive cooperation … in the agriculture sector”, according to state-owned Agence Kampuchea Presse.

AKP, in a report on Friday on its website, said the potential MoU was discussed during a meeting of newly appointed Ambassador of Cuba to Cambodia José Ramón Rodriguez Varona and Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries HE Chan Sarun.

Chan Sarun reportedly asked Cuba to send agricultural experts to the Kingdom to train Cambodian officials once the MoU had been signed, according to AKP.

However, no deadline was given for when the MoU would be signed. Chan Sarun could not be reached yesterday for comment.
