 April 11 2019

The FFTC management through its Director, Dr. Kuo-Ching Lin and Deputy Director, Dr. Akira Hasebe, pay a courtesy call to the Malaysian Friendship and Trade Centre (MFTC), the representative office of Malaysia in Taiwan. In a meeting with MFTC’s President Ms. Sharon Ho, Acting President Mr. Anwar Udzir, and Director for Trade Mrs. Saudah Mat Isa, Director Dr. Lin and Dr. Hasebe brief the Malaysian diplomats on the long partnership between FFTC and Malaysia, particularly the Center’s strong linkage with the Malaysian Agricultural Research Institute (MARDI). Over the past 10 years, both organizations jointly organize workshops and seminars on agricultural technologies and agri-entrepreneurship. This coming August 6-7, FFTC and MARDI are holding an international workshop entitled “ICTs for Precision Agriculture” to be held at the MARDI Headquarters in Selangor, Malaysia. Aside from this, Director Dr. Lin and Dr. Hasebe also discuss the Center’s upcoming 50th anniversary next year. They also extend an invitation to MFTC’s officials to observers in the FFTC’s annual Working Group and Executive Board meetings.
