Shared this through:

Mexico’s Vice Minister of Agriculture, H.E. Mariano Ruiz Funes  Macedo, visited BIOTROP on 20 September 2012 together with his 12- member delegation.  The Vice Minister was accompanied by the Ambassador of Mexico to Indonesia, H.E. Melba Pria and Ir. Yusral Tahir, M.Agr, Director of International Affairs of the Ministry of Agriculture of Indonesia.

During the visit, BIOTROP Director Dr. Bambang Purwantara oriented the Vice Minister and his delegation on the Centre’s programs and activities in relation to its 9th Five-year Development Plan specifically highlighting possible areas of collaboration between BIOTROP and the Ministry of Agriculture of Mexico.  Through a video presentation and mini exhibit, the Vice Minister and his delegation learned about the Centre’s products and services.  A tour of the Centre’s tissue culture laboratory capped the visit. 

The visit was part of the group’s official trip to Indonesia to explore possible collaboration with relevant institutions and learn about agricultural activities in the country.  Other than the Ministry of Agriculture of Indonesia and BIOTROP, the group also visited the Institut Pertanian Bogor.
