Description

In a June 23, 2006 statement, Wen Jiabao promised to provide agriculture experts to Tanzania to train Tanzanian experts. In 2008, the Chinese embassy in Tanzania confirmed that three experts had been dispatched to the Tanzanian Ministry of Agriculture. Two of the experts focused on promotion of advanced techniques and nontraditional crops (for example, soybeans); one was an irrigation expert. The value of this project and exact start and end dates are still unknown.
