a very important point and so i mean you did it no you know quality because. they're going to stand it is going to be investing in it. in education. fact and you're going to see investing in the hood you need to be very wealthy and if you. are still need. if you do act and get it. on investment you're going to be very busy i'm going to say what i think is very. future but also to have. you know our national systems exactly now now while you grew up in senegal linking to your past on experience how difficult can it be to access primary education

specialist west african research center thank you very much. the island of madagascar is well known for its unique wildlife and its production but now it has a new claim to fame it's where the 1st and only african kaavya has been produced the business is an unlikely project in a country is set by grinding challenges bobby entrepreneurs behind the i.b.s.a. luxury foods like car via company important part in improving the nation's economy . it's a busy evening in this high end restaurant in the malagasy capital the restaurant's chef is considered one of his country's best and he's creating new recipes using malagasy caviar the 1st ever to be produced in africa. question you know. i like mixing caviar with salmon because of its mellow slightly fatty nature which
doesn't distort the taste of the caviar i've added an egg on the side perfect. a liking gradients which are not too strong so the caviar is not affected only if nobody actually did that yet the caviar is processed in this factory 60 kilometers outside the capital after the cussing weighing and rinsing comes the all important step of salting the caviar. and forget if you really have to respect the 62nd time limit if not the caviar becomes soft because of the salt without it if you go over a minute you might completely ruin the eggs the. malagasy caviar is sold for $750.00 euros per kilo that's $2.00 to $3.00 times cheaper than is french equivalent but the producers say the quality is just as good. though you can see it's got a nice gray color. when i smell it i'm getting fresh powder and when i taste it it
rolls nicely in the mouth i think it's good caviar. much of the sturgeon fish are imported in fertilized egg form from russia kept in carefully monitored conditions in a lake that said almost 1500 meters above sea level. or lake as a very very pure water fed only by rain water was no industrial or commercial activities in the surrounding area we also produce that the shooter fresh projects from madagascar are all natural so the fish are extremely healthy. malagasy caviar production still has a long way to go with only one tonne produced last year in a world market of 340 tons but the entrepreneurs behind the project are ambitious they want to increase their production 5 fold this year. to restore now of an
