First successful exchange between agribusinesses and State Agricultural Institutes (SAIs)

On Wednesday, June 28, Aeres, MDF and AgriProFocus organized a workshop about modernizing and diversifying the curriculum of the SAIs and assessing the requirements of the private sector for future students. For the SAI teams, it was the first time to directly exchange ideas with representatives from agribusinesses. 

The Myanmar Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation (MoALI) and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through its funding partner NICHE work together to strengthen agricultural schools in Myanmar.

National Poultry Training Centre in Bishoftu (Debre Zeit)

The HAPP equipment has arrived!

The National Poultry Training Center will officially be opened on June 9, 2015.

The sponsored equipment for the National Poultry Training Centre in Bishoftu (Debre Zeit), Ethiopia has arrived at the end of February! A proud moment for the Holland - Africa Poultry Partners (HAPP) and the end of a long logistical process. Since the equipment was shipped from the Netherlands, it took several months to arrive at the training facility due to complications and problems with import-regulations at the Djibouti-harbour. Although the equipment arrived at the port just before Christmas, it was not cleared until the beginning of February. As a result, the official opening had to be slightly delayed to June 2015. However, at this moment, we can proudly announce that the Official Opening of the National Poultry Training Centre will take place on June 9th in Bishoftu, Ethiopia!

HAPP-members and others have kindly sponsored (part o
