YINCHUAN -- Northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region has entered into agreements with Pakistan, Kenya, Morocco and Uzbekistan on building four overseas centers for agricultural technology transfer during the ongoing fourth China-Arab States Expo.
This comes after similar overseas agricultural technology transfer centers have already been established by Ningxia in Mauritania, Kyrgyzstan and Jordan over the years following the inauguration of the China-Arab States Agricultural Technology Transfer Center in 2015 in the northwestern region.
Of the four new centers, the one based in Kenya will focus on promoting technologies on standardized poultry breeding and integrated poultry disease prevention and control.
The Uzbekistan center will carry out integration, demonstration and promotion of new facilities, equipment and technologies for modern agriculture, as well as two-way training and exchange activities for agricultural scientists and technicians.
The center in Morocco will run pilot and demonstration programs on fishmeal processing and production as well as the processing and trade of other aquatic products.
The Pakistan-based one will focus on grain planting and processing and promote advanced agricultural technology as well as agricultural management and production modes from Ningxia.
Running from Thursday to Sunday in Yinchuan, capital of Ningxia, the fourth China-Arab States Expo features trade fairs and forums on infrastructure, Internet plus healthcare, high technology, modern agriculture, logistics, tourism, the digital economy and industrial cooperation, attracting about 12,600 participants from 2,900 regional organizations, commerce chambers, associations and enterprises in 89 countries.
