Hossary, Dr. Aly
On the eve of the third millennium, University professors participated in an International Congress held at the Province of Sassari in Italy, entitled, Food Production and Quality of Life. Some of the key issues that have been discussed included the conservation and management of natural resources, use of modern biotechnology and the implementation of rapid modernization of agriculture. Their objectives were to find ways and means to reduce the gap of productivity between the rich and the poor, since, the eradication of hunger, is considered the great challenge facing mankind today.
