EU to strengthen Rwanda's agricultural sector

Following a meeting between the Rwandan Minister of Finance, John Rwangombwa, and Michel Arrion, head of the EU Delegation in Rwanda, the EU will grant €89 million to the African country with the aim of supporting  agricultural programmes focused on increasing nation-wide food production nationwide.
According to recent updates by All Africa, the funds will be channelled through the government's budget to boost EU supported programmes  intended to decentralise agriculture. In words of Mr Arrion: "with the approval of these funds, we shall increase our original multi-annual programme for the year 2008-2013 by 30 percent which is quite significant. Rwanda is among the top ten countries worldwide for which EU has decided to increase their funding by almost one third. "
