Mr Narsimha Rao, President, Yara Asia, said: "As the world leader in crop nutrition, Yara has been a key player in global food security and sustainable agriculture solutions. Like in other markets, here in Myanmar, Yara's ambition is to combine our global crop knowledge with local competence and help the Myanmese farmer to increase his yield, improve quality and therefore get a higher income for his crop”

Dr. Ye Aung, Senior Rice Technologist & Area Sales Manager, Buhler (Thailand) Ltd, said: “It is a timely event while entire world is woken up by unexpected but drastic changes in this country. The steps new Myanmar Government is taking astonish many governments around the world. G-to G contacts are established, sanctions are suspended, and restrictions are relaxed. Manners and the ways they are doing is somehow competitive. A vastly agricultural country and “rice bowl of Asia” is hardly avoiding food catastrophe during those days. Agriculture is the key economic driver of Myanmar and at the moment the sector is in the dwindling state because of the lack of inputs even though the fact that country has an agro-friendly weather and occupies enormous virgin lands. Apart from financial aids, means of production, knowhow, and knowledge are inseparable. Any kind of help that will be rendered should be complete with dimensions and details, and timely. Towards this direction, this kind of seminar is a perfect one and hits the target”

Mr Aung Kyaw Htoo, Agricultural Business Manager, SGS said: “SGS (Myanmar) Ltd. has been present in Myanmar since 1948, but it is for the first time in many years that the country has opened up to foreign investors. This summit will surely bring benefit to potential investors and businesses to understand the reform that are taking place in Myanmar and the opportunities especially in the Agriculture sectors, which has very big potential to invest and develop new markets.”
