Contents On 15 September, the NACF held a workshop in Korea for government officials of Myanmar. The two-week workshop was designed to provide the participants with the opportunity to learn from the Korean agricultural cooperative system and apply their findings to establishing agricultural distribution systems in Myanmar.

Part of the Overseas Development Assistance (ODA) project, the workshop included lessons and field visits to share with the Burmese how Korean agricultural cooperatives have contributed to poverty reduction in just five decades after the Korean War and developed world-class systems for agricultural distribution and support.

Also included in the workshop were presentations given by the participants on issues relating to ongoing ODA programmes. Experts from across the agricultural sector were then invited to work with the Burmese officials on developing appropriate action plans to address such issues.

The NACF is going to host two additional workshops, once for those whose work relate to distribution and another for cooperators.

The workshops will allow participants insight into a range of themes from policy on operating marketing centres for agricultural products (construction of Nepido 1 and Heho 1 is to be complete in 2021), distribution of agricultural products to management and growth of cooperatives.

Since last year, the NACF has carried out KOICA Global Workshops and other ODA programmes and continued to work with a number of developing countries to launch more joint projects.

NACF Executive Vice President Jae-Sik Lee said: 쏻e will provide full support so that this workshop can help the Burmese address challenges such as improving agricultural distribution and increasing farm incomes.
