Lakkis in Rome to sign agreement with IFAD

Minister of Agriculture, Hassan Lakkis, arrived Monday in Rome heading a senior delegation from the ministry, where he is scheduled to sign an investment agreement with the International Fund For Agricultural Development (IFAD).

The investment project covers all of Lebanon’s seven governorates: Mount Lebanon, North Lebanon, Akkar, Bekaa, Baalbek-Hermel, Nabatieh and South Lebanon. It focuses on the most deprived Lebanese communities affected by the massive influx of displaced Syrians, and aims to reduce poverty in the rural areas.
