Afghan students meet Dutch ministers

Minister of Agriculture Verburg and Minister of Development Cooperation Koenders met nine Afghan students from Van Hall Larenstein on Friday 11 December.

The Afghan students are being trained at VHL Wageningen to run agricultural training courses in Afghanistan. The idea is to help Afghanistan re-establish agricultural education. 'You are going to play an important role, because farming is in the genes of the Afghan people', Minister Verburg told the students.
