PREAMBLE

Recognising the importance of agriculture in the development of a nation and its economy;

Recognising the improved results which may be achieved from co-operating with other nations in the pursuit of a given field;

And recognising the value of a common, collaborative approach to finding solutions to the problems which our nations may face;

We hereby resolve to form a pact of nations united in our desire for development of our respective agricultural sectors, and do agree to the following as the basis for such a pact:

  • C) The pact will facilitate the exchange of information and materials to the common benefit of all signatory nations.
