According to reports, the opening ceremony was attended by Gilad Cohen, head of the Asia and Pacific division of Israel’s Foreign Ministry; Ronen Gilor, Israeli ambassador to Myanmar; Naing Kyi Win, director general of the Department of Agriculture Research; and Nang Hseng Horn, rector of the university.
The Israeli Embassy in Myanmar initiated the project as part of bilateral cooperation between the two countries.
