We were honored to welcome a delegation from Jilin province in China on August 31, 2018. The visit was arranged by the Danish Agriculture & Food Council in cooperation with the Danish Agro Industry, Denmark’s Export Credit Agency and the Danish Embassy in China.
Purpose of the visit
The background is that Jilin province plans to invest in the development of agro industry by acquiring the latest technologies from Denmark, among other countries. They are especially interested in many elements of the pig production. In relation to that, the Danish Embassy in China in connection with the growth advisors arranged the visit of the high-level delegation to Denmark in order to promote Danish agricultural technology and know-how. Visiting the Danish Pig Academy was part of the official program.
Program of the day
In cooperation with the Danish Agriculture & Food Council and the Danish Pig Academy, a special program for the guests was arranged. Many members of the Danish Pig Academy had the opportunity to present their companies at their own stand in the showroom. The guests were also introduced to the financing opportunities by EKF and got a short presentation about Agromek – Northern Europe’s largest agricultural expo. A few member companies of the Danish Agro Industry were also present during the day.
Among the delegation members were General Director of the Jilin provincial agriculture committee, President of the Jilin provincial animal husbandry bureau, President of the Jilin academy of agriculture science as well as CEO of the various agricultural companies in the Jilin province.
Not only the Danish representatives had a chance to introduce themselves, but also the Chinese speakers got the opportunity to express their interests. Some of the key topics were, for example, the problem of straw energy utilization technology and efficient use of pig waste and straw to produce organic fertilizer for the fields.
Thank you to all the participants
The Danish Pig Academy would like to thank the arrangers for granting us the honor to host this event. We also wish to extend our gratitude to all delegates for visiting us. We hope our guests had a pleasant stay and gained a lot of inspiration and knowledge. We wish them all the best luck with their projects and look forward to seeing them at Agromek 2018!
