Thomas is leading an official delegation to participate in the 40th ministerial-level conference of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations from October 7 to 11, according to an official statement.
The presentation is being made after FAO member-countries showed keen interest in the National Food Security Act, which gives two-thirds of the country`s population the right to get highly subsidised foodgrains.
The minister is also scheduled to meet FAO Director General Jos Graziano da Silva and Ertharin Cousin, Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Programme.
