Agriculture Secretary William Dar delivered congratulatory remarks during a joint seminar on value chains organized by Korea’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (MAFRA) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) on November 28, 2019 in Seoul, Korea. In his remarks, Dar underscored the importance of empowering the local communities about careful but productive stewardship of both their land and water resources and to optimize opportunities to create more jobs and generate more wealth in the countryside.

Dar commended the focus of Global High-tech Agricultural University (GHAN) education on utilizing the efficiency of the best scientific knowledge and technological pathways and disseminating revolutionary technologies and techniques. This is on top of strengthening industrial and academic cooperation across the agricultural value chain.
