Feb 01, 2018 Medical Comments Off on Agricultural zone of 1,000 hectares to be set up in Indonesia: COA
Taipei, In accordance with the New Southbound Policy an exclusive production zone up to 1,000 hectares in size and equipped with agricultural technology from Taiwan is to be established in Indonesia, according to the Council of Agriculture (COA).
COA Minister Lin Tsung-hsien (???) said Indonesian officials are scheduled to visit Taiwan next week and finalize the plans, adding that by 2020 the COA expects to have a second production zone operational in one of the target Southbound policy nations.
The COA plans to utilize various Taiwanese crops, production technology, irrigation works, small agricultural machinery, fertilizer and materials, said Lin.
Several other agricultural projects are also planned, including a vegetable production zone in Malaysia which will receive assistance from the COA's Agriculture and Food Agency and Taiwan Fertilizer Company, said Lin, adding that a project to produce rice is also planned in Thailand.
There are also plans to build a feed mill in Myanmar, Lin said, adding that over the past two years, exports to the policy's target countries of fertilizer, agricultural machinery and agricultural materials have grown quicker than any other category.
The New Southbound Policy seeks to engage more closely with countries in Southeast Asia, South Asia and Australia and New Zealand.
