Israeli agricultural experts visit Myanmar E-mail

Professor Ayal Kimhi, the Sir Henry d’ Avigdor Goldsmid Chair in Agricultural Economics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and agronomist Dr Avri Bar Zur visited Myanmar from 21 to 26 July.

In light of the co-operation between Myanmar and Israel to share knowledge and experience on “Agro Economics”, the leading agricultural experts provided an opportunity for local government officials and students to gain insights and exchange views during their stay.

During the visit, Professor Kimhi and Dr Bar Zur met with Aung San Suu Kyi, State Counsellor of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, and Dr Aung Thu, Union Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation, together with the Ambassador of Israel, Daniel Zonshine. They also visited the Ye Zin University of Agriculture and had a discussion with the rector and professors from the relevant departments.

On 24 July, Professor Kimhi gave a lecture at the Yangon University of Economics to the post-graduate students of Master of Business, Public Administration and Development Studies Programs. The faculty also hosted a round-table discussion on Agro Economics for the professors, with the vice president and members and other relevant representatives from the private and public sectors. The discussion was moderated by Dr Zaw Oo, Executive Director of the Central Economic and Social Development Research Center (CESD). The aim was to bring Israeli experience at a practical level in macro-economics, to see things that are relevant to Myanmar, to share and create dialogue, and to have an impact.
