In the context of bilateral cooperation, the Panama Agricultural Research Institute (IDIAP) donated this week to Haiti, a first lot of 8 selected seed varieties of rice and maize, which will be handed to farmers so they can recover after the Hurricane Matthew.

The event took place at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MURE) of Panama, in the presence of Axel Villalobos, Director General of IDIAP, Willian Exantus, Chargé d'affaires of Haiti in Panama, Luz Divina Arrededondo, Representative of the Directorate General for International Cooperation, of Stephanny Moncada, representative of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and several members of the MIRE.
