China sends groups of experts to provide Eritrea with agricultural technical assistance

Local farmers work at a demonstration orchard of agricultural technical assistance, in Asmara, Eritrea, Sept. 27, 2023. Agriculture is the mainstay of Eritrea's economy, with about four-fifths of the population engaged in farming and animal husbandry. However, the lack of crop varieties and backward agricultural technology seriously restrict the country's agricultural development.

In order to promote the development of Eritrea's agricultural industry, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of China has sent three groups of experts to Eritrea to carry out technical assistance in the fields of legumes, fruit tree gardening and oil, and achieved remarkable results.
