The Korean government agreed to provide financial assistance for a large number of agriculture projects and also provide scholarships for Sri Lankans to study in Korea on modern agriculture technologies, Agriculture Minister Mahinda Yapa Abeywardane said.
“Since the past five years, the Korean government contributed much for the development of the country’s agriculture field,” the minister said.
He said the two countries also plan to sign a bilateral agreement to exchange gene plasma at the Asia Pacific Agriculture workshop which will be held in Korea in December 2012.
