Korea to Strengthen Partnerships with 7 Asian Countries for Customized Agricultural Development Cooperation

KREI, MAFRA held ODA Roundtable Conference for Agricultural Development Cooperation in Asia



The Korea Rural Economic Institute (KREI) and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (MAFRA) on Nov. 5 jointly held the Second Official Development Assistance (ODA) Roundtable Conference for Agricultural Development Cooperation in Asia.


This event, which followed last year’s first conference, aimed to strengthen agricultural cooperation with seven Asian countries: Laos, Mongolia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, and the Philippines. Particularly, this year participants made country-specific presentations on priorities for agricultural ODA and project proposals, enabling concrete discussions on future projects.


In his welcoming remarks, KREI President Kim Changgil said, “It will be possible to identify agricultural ODA projects with high potential performance through an approach which places top priority on the field of a partner country.”


In country-specific sessions, Laos selected the development of irrigation facilities and infrastructure as a key cooperation area of 2018. In the wrap-up discussion, participants discussed effective cooperation plans on the direction of future ODA projects in agriculture based on the partner countries’ expectations regarding Korean agricultural development experiences and agricultural policy outcomes.
