At the meeting, the minister emphasized the importance of stability and predictability in Chad. For this very reason, our country wants to provide assistance to the Central African country in several areas. István Nagy mentioned healthcare, the development of agriculture and the strengthening of educational cooperation as examples. Our country is ready to create a model farm in the region, where irrigation development technologies can be presented and experiments can be carried out with seeds. The head of the ministry recommended Hungarian irrigation development technologies to his attention, through which evaporation can be reduced and water can be better retained in the soil, so farming can be even more effective.

Chad plays a key role in maintaining the stability of the region, which is why special attention must also be paid to food security

The head of the agricultural ministry explained that Hungary is ready to launch an agricultural advisory system similar to Uganda’s in the country, which would further increase agricultural expertise. István Nagy also offered to strengthen educational cooperation. According to this, our country would support the exchange of students and the facilitation of the transfer of knowledge between the two countries. As an example, the head of ministry mentioned the FAO agricultural scholarship program and the Stipendium Hungaricum, which operates with the cooperation of our country. As part of the meeting, within the framework of the Hungary Helps Agency, István Nagy handed over seeds to the Chadian Minister of Agriculture. The aim of the initiative is to further strengthen the safe food supply in the Lake Chad region.
