50 young Filipino farmers to depart for Taiwan for agricultural internship and training program

50 Filipino farmers expected to be sent to Taiwan for one year for an agricultural internship program between Taiwan and the Philippines. Both countries enjoy healthy cooperation in the agricultural sector. 


The 50 young farmers from different parts of the Philippines, both male and female already participated in an orientation program for the project.


The farmers will begin to take their basic Mandarin language classes online which will be facilitated by Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO).


The Filipino farmers will be accommodated in housing or facilities prepared by the host farmers and learn about local farming skills and technologies through classwork and fieldwork, including crop planting and animal husbandry once they arrived in Taiwan.


They will stay in Taiwan for one year and will receive allowances and an eventual deployment to Taiwan in June.


Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO) chairman, Angelito Banayo, expressed his belief that the interns will learn a lot in Taiwan, praising the island for being able to export farm produce of excellent quality despite the limited available arable land.
