Concerning Drought and Desertification

Within the framework of its commitment to the OAU's decisions, Egypt announced its readiness to receive a number of African missions to train them in the agricultural, irrigational and industrial fields. Meanwhile, Egypt expressed its readiness to send Egyptian missions in the same fields to the African countries that suffer food shortage to develop their agriculture.
