D-8 Organization for Economic Cooperation has launched a new project to avoid food crisis around the world.
Speaking to AA correspondent on Wednesday, D-8 Secretary General Prof. Widi Pratikto said that the world was facing another food crisis.
"To prevent new food crisis, the organization has launched a "Seed Bank" project which will be focused on the sectors of agriculture, food safety, energy, trade as well as industry and transportation," said Pratikto.
Pratikto stated that D-8 countries, Turkey, Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Nigeria and Pakistan, make one-sixth of world's all population.
After making several arrangements on the structure of organization, "Despite the economic downturn around the globe, in 2009 D-8 had a trade of 5.7 billion USD, and following the new agreements it reached 7.3 billion USD in 2011," said Pratikto.
Mentioning the new project of the organization, Pratikto said that Turkey would prepare a rough draft until October.
