During its four day tour in Ethioipia, the delegation is also expected to visit various development activities in the region.

Cluster farming is considered as one of the ways by which the country will enhance structural productivity of the agricultural sector, promoting small scale farmers adjacent to one another to work together and produce similar crops in large quantities.

Cluster farming also facilitates, among others, the supply of specific fertilizer conducive for agroecology and enhanced technical support including vital machineries to harvest crops.
