Brazil, FAO experts promote cotton growing in Peru
May '13
Experts from Brazil and representatives of Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) are currently visiting Peru to promote the development of small-scale farming for cotton production. 
The visit is a part of the Brazil-FAO International Cooperation Program. Its purpose is to help increase productivity, improve income, to contribute to poverty reduction and eradication of hunger in Peru.
The team of experts includes representatives of Empresa Brasileña de Investigación Agropecuaria (Embrapa or Brazil’s Agricultural Research Corporation), Agencia Brasileña de Cooperación (ABC or Brazilian Cooperation Agency) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Brazil, FAO’s Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean and a FAO technical group in Peru.
The program will focus on Lambayeque, Ica and San Martin areas of Peru and suggest enhanced methods of production, processing and transformation of cotton fibre to the local cotton farmers. 
According to Peru’s Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism, the agriculture and textile sector employs 350,000 people in Peru, contributing 1.6 percent to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
