FIARA 2000, Senegal s international fair for agriculture and animal resources was held in Dakar over 11 days in mid-December 1999. It came close to meeting its targets of attracting more than 20,000 visitors each day. Designed to be a meeting place for various farmers organisations and for direct contacts between producers and urban consumers, FIARA 2000 was organised by the national council for rural cooperation CNCR and the association of rural council presidents APCR. Expanding opportunities were highlighted both in regional trade and among the renowned Senegalese diaspora in Europe, southern Africa, and the Americas. Alongside the bustle of the show-and-sell stands was a daily discussion forum focussing on specific themes, such as women, fishing, and decentralisation. CTA facilitated the sessions on communication, engaging in dialogue with users and partners on its services, and supported the participation of five representatives of farmers organisations from other countries.
