MISSION OF FRENCH FARMERS IN MACEDONIA (27 February – 4 March 2012)
On the occasion of the conference Management of cooperatives in terms of market economy from 27 February to 4 March 2012, the delegation of French farmers will visit Macedonia.
This visit is an opportunity for Mr. Richard Demuynick, the president of the organisation AFDI (French farmers and International development), and Mme Odile Lebarbenchon, the administrator of the Agricultural Dairy Cooperative (CUMA), to present the French know-how in the agricultural field. After attending the Conference, organised from the Federation of Farmers from Republic of Macedonia (FFRM) and scheduled for February 28, the French delegation will have several meetings with the farmers’ cooperatives and working groups in Berovo and Kumanovo.
This activity represents the beginning of the second year in the agriculture development component in the framework of the project for Decentralised cooperation between the Lower Normandy Region and Republic of Macedonia, implemented by FFRM from Macedonia, and AFDI from Lower Normandy. This year the farmers will continue to work with the cooperatives, but one part of the cooperation will be devoted to improving hygiene and milk quality on Macedonian farms.
The Programme for decentralised cooperation between the Region Lower Normandy and Republic of Macedonia is coordinated by the Association of Local Democracy Agencies (ALDA).
