Chinese agricultural technology demonstration centers, or ATDC, have promoted the transfer of advanced agricultural technologies from China to African countries, and could help the continent recover from food insecurity, said South African experts.

“ATDC could play a bigger role in ensuring food security in the region as the countries recover from COVID-19,” said Elias Dafi, an econometrician who is a lecturer at the Tshwane University of Technology, adding that more research is needed to better understand the role of such demonstration centers in Africa.

Education and development are inextricably linked. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world,” noted Nelson Mandela. Where there is no education, there is no development.
