IDB SUPPORTS AGRICULTURE.

The Inter-American Development Bank has approved a US$55 million loan to the Dominican Republic to support new agriculture technologies, greater food safety and economic reforms to make the food and agriculture sector more competitive and to reduce poverty, reports DR1 Daily News (April 19, 2002). The funds will provide direct support to farmers who adopt technologies that reduce the costs of production in a sustainable manner and at the same time promote efficiency in the use of resources.
