Peru to Receive Agricultural Research Support from South KoreaAugust 14, 2013
The Peruvian Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (MINAGRI) has reported that South Korea will support Peru in research activities related to agriculture and livestock that are being conducted by the latter's National Institute for Agrarian Innovation (INIA). The cooperation will be done through the next installment of a permanent research center of the Korea Project on International Agriculture (KOPIA) in Peru.
KOPIA will thus provide technical, financial, and material cooperation to carry out a range of activities from agricultural development projects to training of Peruvian researchers by Korean experts and researchers. The establishment of the high-tech agricultural center will be carried out within the framework of the memorandum of understanding signed between INIA and the Rural Development Administration of Korea (RDA) in July 2012.
