DILI, 18 august 2021 (TATOLI) – The Representative and Country Director of the World Food Program (WFP), Dageng Liu, today, held a meeting with the President of the Board Directive of Timor-Leste News Agency TATOLI, Manuel Pinto to discuss and establish cooperation on food security and nutrition program.

Pinto informed that the main objective of the meeting was to discuss and establish cooperation on food security and nutrition programs.

“The main objective of our meeting with Mr. Dageng Liu is to hear the work and progress that had been done by WFP, in two sectors, including food security and nutrition, and strengthening resilience to food and nutrition insecurity in the country,” Pinto made the comments during the discussion, at WFP’s office, in Caicoli, Dili, today.

He said the meeting also was important for both parties to share about some of the work that WFP had been working on humanitarian assistance, gender equality, and so on.

Pinto said through the cooperation, both parties would work together in disseminating information on food security and nutrition via TATOLI’s live streaming program, known as Roundtable Discussion, which will involve relevant entities, stakeholders, and government ministries.

Speaking during the meeting, Liu said it was a great initiative: “We are very much interested to support this idea. We can do feature stories, and live streaming on nutrition, global hunger, and other hot issues.”

Liu said everybody has a role to play in addressing the food insecurity and nutrition issue in Timor-Leste, through promoting a healthy diet and so on.

“We see the strong interest of TATOLI, and we are looking forward to receiving the proposal to see how we can work together to raise more awareness on food security and nutrition issues. I think, TATOLI as a national media, you have big platforms and we look forward to the collaboration to see how we can move forward to bring again food security and nutrition to everybody’s life,” said Liu.

Liu stressed that WFP would stand by and be ready to work with TATOLI on food security and nutrition.

Both parties have agreed with each other to have another meeting to discuss in more detail on technical part regarding the implementation of the program.
