ALBA-TCP Ministers of Agriculture will meet to promote the agri-food sector

This February 18, the meeting of agriculture ministers of the member states of the Bolivarian Alliance of the Peoples of Our America-Peoples’ Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP) will be held, as part of the follow-up to the Postpandemic 2021 Work Plan.

The main objective of the telematic meeting is to establish strategic and joint response actions to promote the agri-food sector, given the negative impact generated by the health emergency of COVID-19.

Last December, President Nicolás Maduro advocated to coordinate actions to integrate the productive plans of the Alliance on the basis of cooperation and complementarity.

The president proposed the generalization of the method promoted by the Great Mission Agro Venezuela, made up of nine vertices and aimed at expanding productive capacities in order to achieve food sovereignty.

“A true revolution must produce all its food and must have the capacity to export to the brother peoples of ALBA-TCP”, the Head of Sate asserted at that time.
