Description

In mid-2007, Hubei province in China and Gaza province in Mozambique signed a twinning-agreement that stipulated ensuring rice production in an area of 300 hectares, modernizing farming infrastructure, sending agricultural experts, and building a canal. Reports have indicated that China agreed to send $800 million for agriculture, canals, dams, and experts, but it is unclear what portion of this amount is going specifically to the twinning agreement provisions. It is likely that a majority of those funds are represented in projects ID#1197 and ID#1215, The agreement was to develop 300 hectares to demonstrate irrigated rice, but as of 2009/2010, only about 35-40 hectares had been developed, and an application for more land has been placed.
