Contents National Agricultural Cooperative Federation (NACF) conducts ODA Program 쏞apacity Building for Agricultural Cooperatives

From May 24 till June 04, the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation (NACF, Chairman Kim Byeong-Won) Korea hosted and held an Official Development Assistance (ODA) program under the title 쁂apacity Building for Agricultural Cooperatives. This year, a total of 18 participants from 9 countries attended this two week course (Cameroon, Columbia, Ecuador, Ghana, Iraq, Mozambique, Pakistan, Senegal, Timor Leste) consisted of high-ranking government officials and members of co-operatives in charge of agricultural cooperative issues in their country.

While the opening ceremony was held at the head office located in Seodaemun, Seoul on May 27, participants had the opportunity to listen to lectures regarding the development and operation of Korean agricultural cooperatives and visited actual agricultural sites and facilities to better their understanding and experience.

In addition, the participants presented country reports that included the status of agricultural cooperatives of their country and also draw out action plans that will provide a political framework for the promotion of cooperatives in accordance with their own agricultural situation.

The same program is planned to be held in the following years for working-level officials and high-ranking officials.

Meanwhile, the NACF has been working on various ODA projects and have successfully conducted a program on 쁂apacity Building for the Operation of Sustainable Financial Cooperatives in 2018. This program will also be run again for working-level officials in 2019 and for high-ranking officials in 2020.

General Manager of the Global Cooperation Office, Mr. Lee Kyoung-Won said during his welcoming speech that "NACF Korea is multifunctional cooperative which not only provides agri-business support such as distributions, extension services and so on, but also conducts financial businesses and services for its members and the general public, making it a unique model that cannot be found in any other country. He added on by saying, 쏯ACF hopes to become a good model that developing countries can learn from and expects participants to adapt what they have learned during this program to their own countries when overcoming agricultural challenges they are facing.
