Agricultural technologies from Israel will be applied to improve the yield and production of Myanmar’s agricultural sector, said U Aye Tun, deputy director of the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation.
Delegates from Myanmar and Israel talked about the cooperation in the agricultural sector recently at the headquarters of Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (UMFCCI).
“The two sides talked about the technologies necessary for the agricultural sector’s development, including increasing the farmers’ income and improving exports. It was a really valuable meeting,” U Aye Tun said.
Academics, professionals and businesspeople from Myanmar and Israel also participated in the meeting where Israeli technology regarding post-harvest processing, storage facilities and systems and seed distribution methods were discussed.
“We talked about improving the quality of Myanmar’s products through the private cooperation between companies from both countries,” said U Zaw Min Win, vice chair of UMFCCI.
