From Almeria to Ecuador


THE Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Development, Rodrigo Sanchez Haro, has received a delegation from the government of Ecuador.

Ecuador will undertake a project of horticultural development and is studying the Almeria agricultural model to devise and implement a strategy.

Haro Sanchez praised the project, called the 2014-2020 Agrovivienda Ecuador, which seeks to merge agricultural production with the provision of essential services resulting in the creation of sustainable communities and sustainable development of rural areas.

The project is the first phase with a total investment of around €631 million ($750 million), which will build 1,500 hectares of greenhouse and 30,000 homes in the Latin American country.
