On Wednesday, Minister Mai travelled to Mérida along with a delegation from the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) which includes CEO Servulo Baeza, Director of Research Ina Sanchez, and Coordinator of Non-Traditional Crops Fay Garnett.
Today they are visiting soy, soursop, pitahaya (dragon fruit), and coconut plantations, and INIFAP’s Mocochá Experimental Research Field, before the signing of the agreement this evening at six at Mocochá.
On Thursday, the MAFSE delegation visited the Centro de Investigación Científica de Yucatán – Scientific Investigation Center of Yucatan (CICY) in Mérida, Yucatán, including the Yucatan Scientific Technological Park (Parque Científico Tecnológico de Yucatán), the production Unit known as ‘la Biofábrica’ and the Seeds Producing Unit.
They also attended a presentation on CICY’s Research Units and another on the experience in the development of the agri-food sector with special emphasis on coconuts, agave, and coffee.
They also had a meeting on soy production and made a visit to agricultural biotech firm VBS Biotec.
“The visit is the beginning of technical and knowledge sharing agreements, exchanges and training both governments will engage on in the near future,” said a MAFSE post on social media.
