Japan, Vietnam jointly provide phytosanitary training

In Uncategorized on September 30, 2008 at 6:56 pm

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Vietnam Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Plant Protection Department (PPD) are working together to provide knowledge on phytosanity for 25 trainees from Cambodia.

This course is part of the JICA Third Country Training Programme on Phytosanitary signed by JICA and PPD in December 2007 with Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar as target countries.

The Third Country Training Programme on Phytosanitary is implemented by JICA and PPD as a part of Japan’s support to the four countries aiming at improving their phytosanitary capacity and strengthening regional cooperation.

The ability to protect countries with shared borders and similar ecosystem, such as Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam, from pest and disease invasion largely depends on their ability to provide reliable phytosanitary services, JICA said. However, one of the constraints for harmonisation of plant protection system amongst the four countries is the discrepancy in plant quarantine capacity, it added.

According to JICA, significant progress has been made in plant protection in Vietnam. The expertise and resources in this area that Vietnam has developed can be utilised to narrow such gap.

The Programme is to be implemented in 3 years from 2007 to 2009. The first course was conducted last February for 10 participants from Laos. After this course for Cambodia, scheduled to close on October 2, JICA and the PPD will continue working together to organise more courses for all of the three countries.-
