H.E Dr. Al-Zadjali, The Director-General of The Arab Organization for Agricultural Development (AOAD) says collaboration of AOAD and BADEA focuses on the development of the human resources of the African countries in the fields of agricultural development and food security.

A training course jointly organized by AOAD and the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA) on the "Preparation, Analysis and Evaluation of Agricultural Projects" was inaugurated on Sunday 6/4/2014 at AOAD regional office for the central region, Cairo, Egypt. The training course was attended by participants from (14) Anglophone African countries i.e. Angola, Eritrea, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, seychelles, South Sudan, Tanzania and Zambia.

 In his opening speech Dr. Al-Zadjali, the Director General of AOAD, welcomed the participating African trainees, expressing AOAD and BADEA's keenness to encourage and promote African-Arab cooperation in the fields of agriculture and food security, focusing mainly on human resources development.

He expressed hope that the general secretariat of the League of Arab States (LAS) and the commission of the African Union would take genuine steps to activate the facilitation Unit of the Joint Acton Plan (JAP) for agricultural development and food security in Africa and the Arab region, as approved by the African-Arab Summit, Sirt, Libya, 2010 , and thereafter re-emphasized by the African Arab summit of Kuwait 2013, naming AOAD as the host of the Facilitation Unit.

 Dr. Al-Zadjali has also expressed his thanks and appreciation to the General Manager of BADEA commending the role played by BADEA in facilitating the holding of the training course and similar courses through provision of funds and logistical support. He further valued BADEA's support to AOAD and their partnership in the area of HRD in agriculture and food security in the African continent.
