The Korea Times – “Labex-Korea to Define Collaboration With Brazil”

The Seoul-based English Newspaper Korea Times has published an article about Labex Korea in its edition of January 17, 2010.  It highlights the main priorities for the collaboration between the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation – Embrapa and the Rural development Administration of South Korea – RDA.  Intense interaction between the two organizations started when President Lee Myung-bak and Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva met in November 2008 and signed a Memorandum of Understanding on agricultural research cooperation. The event and the quick action that followed, the opening of Labex Korea and RAVL (RDA-Abroad Virtual Laboratoty) – the Korean homolog of Labex in Brazil, stresses the importance given by the two countries to agriculture in their foreign policies.  You can read the Korea Times article by clicking here.
