A special ceremony was held last week in Myanmar to inaugurate a new Israeli demonstration and research plot at the Yezin Agricultural University. The plot will be used to demonstrate to students and faculty members various aspects of Israel’s advanced agriculture and water management techniques.

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.
