Juba, June 24, 2019 (SSNA) — The European Union (EU) says it will keep supporting South Sudan’s agriculture sector, saying 100,000 South Sudanese farmers benefit from the program.

The EU also says it has spent nearly $300,000,000 million dollars on agricultural projects in South Sudan.

“The EU has been a development partner in South Sudan’s agricultural sector, with support provided to about 100,000 farmers through a development portfolio of more than 260 million euro. We are committed to our mandate to help the South Sudanese people through development support and we will continue to work closely with all our partners for the theme of this conference: less vulnerability and more productivity,” European Union ambassador to South Sudan, Dr. Sinead Walsh, said.

EU adds that it has conducted a two-day summit with representatives of South Sudan’s government and that the conference went well.

Most of South Sudan land is fertile, but the young nation has not developed its agriculture sector since its independence from Sudan. South Sudan’s government depends heavily on oil revenues.
