Santo Domingo, Jun 17 (Prensa Latina) The Ministries of Agriculture of the Dominican Republic and Brazil signed a collaboration agreement for the knowledge and technical transfer to improve agricultural production in this country, local press reported on Monday.

To this end, the Dominican Republic will have the support of the Brazilian agricultural research company (EMBRAPA), the Ministry of Agriculture said in a statement.
