US-UN Media Tour: 9-13 December 2013
Ambassador David J. Lane (left), the United States Ambassador to the UN Agencies in Rome and Ms. Nina Brandstrup (centre, with green hat), the FAO Representative in Cambodia, receive gifts of rice from farmers who have benefited from rice production activities in the FAO MALIS project funded by EU. These farmers are giving a gift of Phka Romduol aromatic rice, as a token of thanks for the help with good seed and training in the farmer field school and business school. The Ambassador was very happy and told the ladies he would take the rice back to Rome to eat with his family at Christmas. Mr. Gianpetro Bordignon (centre) Representative and Country Director for World Food Programme was also present, accompanying the Ambassador and the media tour.
