The African Union Commission (AUC) and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) on November 12, 2012 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to strengthen agricultural policies in Africa.

A statement issued by the AUC said the MoU was signed by Mrs. Rhoda Peace Tumusiime who is the AUC’s Department of Rural Economy and Agriculture (DREA) Commissioner and CTA Director, Dr. Michael Hailu.

During the signing ceremony, Mrs. Tumusiime welcomed the partnership with CTA as a timely move; as global attention was now focused on Africa’s resolve to shoulder its responsibilities of eradicating hunger and poverty.
