Taiwan and FFTC Collaborate on Agricultural Development in Asia-Pacific – Viet Nam

The Taiwan International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Food and Fertilizer Technology Center (FFTC) in the Asia-Pacific region. This agreement aims to enhance agricultural cooperation between Taiwan and its neighboring countries.

Since 1959, Taiwan has been actively involved in the agricultural development of the Asia-Pacific region. It first sent cultivation experts to Vietnam to help the country become a leading rice exporter. In 2023, the TaiwanICDF set up a technical mission in the Philippines for the Farm and Fisheries Clustering and Consolidation program. These initiatives have greatly contributed to improving food production, public nutrition, and environmental sustainability in the Philippines through the transfer of technology.

Looking ahead, the TaiwanICDF is excited about future collaboration with the FFTC. They plan to share Taiwan’s advancements in smart agriculture, support the development of local talent, and work together to establish partnerships in the Asia-Pacific region. This partnership is expected to further strengthen agricultural practices and innovation in the region.
