Following a MoU between the Institute of Business Economics Research and Development (IBERD) Foundation of Thailand and the Rakhine State Government for sustainable development projects in Rakhine State at the Rakhine State Investment Fair, a training and research program on development of fish and shrimp farming was inaugurated yesterday at the Sittway Hotel.
At the opening ceremony for the program, U Kyaw Aye Thein, the Rakhine State Minister for Finance, Taxation, Planning, and Commerce said the state government, in collaboration with Thailand’s IBERD, will conduct training programs to improve the fish and shrimp farming industry, undertake research programs to develop a Rakhine farming model, and provide practical demonstrations in potential areas, along with aquacultural governance.
At present, farmers need to shift from the traditional saltwater shrimp farming method to an advanced one, he said, and encouraged shrimp entrepreneurs to share their technical know-how, experiences, and production challenges.
“Businesspersons attending the course need to apply the lessons learned to develop fish and shrimp farming. The Rakhine State Government will contribute to the development of fish and shrimp farming as much as it can,” he said.
Afterwards, Mrs. Natee Chuansanit from IBERD explained the objectives behind the training program. Officials from the Rakhine State Fisheries Department and 70 shrimp breeders attended the program. Livestock experts from Thailand’s IBERD will offer a three-day intensive course, including practical sessions, under the program.—Tin Tun (IPRD) (Translated by Ei Myat Mon)
