Center visits TLRI officials


The FFTC delegation, including Director Dr. Su-San Chang, Deputy Director Dr. Tomonari Watanabe and Agricultural Economist Mr. Kyong Won Lee, recently visited the Taiwan Livestock Research Institute (TLRI).  In this visit, FFTC and TLRI discussed the current issues of livestock research and plans for future collaboration. 

Director Dr. Chang firstly expressed FFTC's gratitude for the TLRI's long term partnership. The TLRI's Director General Dr. Jeng-Fang Huang also appreciated the close collaboration with FFTC. For the past two consecutive years (2020 and 2021), both FFTC and TLRI jointly held two workshops on ''Innovation and Application of Animal Vaccines and Health-Promotion Feed Additives for Antibiotic-Free Era in Livestock Industry" and "The Practice and Benefits of Circular Agriculture in Waste Reducing and Recycling."

The purpose of this visit was to consult with TLRI about current issues on livestock research, especially in the light of today’s global problems, such as food security, the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, etc.  Director General Dr. Huang, Deputy Director General Dr. Churng-Faung Lee and Secretary General Dr. Mei-Ping Cheng mentioned the major issues and challenges faced by the livestock sector. These are reducing GHG emissions, increasing animal feed self-sufficiency, introducing smart/precision livestock farming systems, CPTPP, animal welfare and building up the food chain system from breeders to consumers.  FFTC would like to co-organize an international workshop covering one or more of these challenging issues in the future.
