Foreign Aid Project Driving Overseas Business Opportunities - Taiwan Testing Technology for Pesticide Residues Acclaimed in Central American Exhibition

Foreign Aid Project Driving Overseas Business Opportunities - Taiwan Testing Technology for Pesticide Residues Acclaimed in Central American Exhibition

Members of the Institutional Enforcement Project for Agribusiness, jointly implemented by the International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) and the Republic of Guatemala, were invited to participate in the Agritrade fair held by Guatemalan Exporters Association on March 23-24 this year. A total of16 local manufacturers who received counseling under the project presented at the trade exhibition, and Taiwanese companies on display at the project stall also had the chance to expand business opportunities. In the exhibition, the Rapid Bioassay of Pesticide Residues (RBPR) system from Taiwan received wide attention.

The RBPR system was developed by Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute, Council of Agriculture and introduced to Guatemala through the project to solve the problem of local exported vegetables and fruits being returned by customs due to excessive pesticide residue. Local companies were keen to adopt the RBPR system in their own business.
The biennial Agritrade is the largest agricultural products exhibition in Central America, and always attracts many manufacturers from Europe, the U.S. and Latin America to join in and find business opportunities. This time, the RBPR technique displayed by SiCheng Biotechnology Co., Ltd. attracted the interest of more than 40 companies, including SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. President of Guatemala, Jimmy Morales Cabrera and Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Food in Guatemala (MAGA), Mario Méndez Montenegro, visited the project booth and engaged with project personnel and beneficiaries.

Taiwan’s foreign aid projects not only help to pinpoint and resolve local agricultural problems, but also assist our partner countries through the use of our agricultural technology and expand business opportunities for domestic manufacturers.
