The Ministry of Forestry and Research (MOFR) received video conferencing equipment donated by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

With this facility being installed, MOFR will be able to efficiently conduct meetings with other ministry colleagues as well as with partners and stakeholders.

This will enhance the communication ability of ministry officials.
