[ 2013-05-01 ]

    February 3rd, IFST signed the Joint Discipline Development Agreement with Anhui Academy of Agricultural Sciences (AAAS) in Hefei. Director General Dr. Dai Xiaofeng and President of AAAS Dr. Yang Jianbo signed the Joint Discipline Development Agreement.

 

    Director Dai Xiaofeng pointed out that Anhui is a major agricultural province in China and has favorable natural conditions for the agricultural products processing industry. Guided by the 18th National Congress of CPC and the No.1 Document of 2013 from the Central Government to “Accelerate the Development of Modern Agriculture”, IFST and AAAS will make joint efforts in discipline development, with a view to giving full play to the technical advantages of the two sides and promoting the development of the agro-products processing industry and agro-products processing technologies in Anhui Province. He stressed that the agro-products processing industry is the way out, the source of power, energy and potential for agriculture and the factor to determine its success or failure. According to the experience of developed countries, when per capita GDP exceeds US$5000, the agro-products processing industry will replace the traditional planting and breeding industry to become the pillar of agricultural development. In 2011, the per capita GDP of China exceeded US$5000, marking the advent of the strategic period for the agro-products processing industry to realize development by leaps and bounds. IFST, as the national team for agro-products processing technologies innovation in China, will not only grasp this opportunity and strive to be the best, but will also shoulder the obligations and responsibilities to join hands with fellow institutions for common development, with a view to promoting holistic development and progress in the agro-products processing industry and making greater contributions to the realization of agricultural modernization. After the signing ceremony, Dr. Dai Xiaofeng made an academic presentation entitled “Modern Agriculture and Agro-Products Processing Industry – Essence of China’s Modernization and Selection of Path”

 

    President Yang Jianbo expressed his gratitude to IFST for its support to AAAS. He expressed that the development of agriculture in AnhuiProvince relies on the pillar of the agro-products processing industry and also the great support of the national team. The advanced mindset of common discipline development is a great mode for AnhuiProvince to leverage in the effort to seek agricultural development.
