UCD has agreed a deal with leading Chinese dairy producer Dairy United to create an agricultural demonstration farm in Hohhot, the capital of Inner Mongolia.
The memorandum of understanding will result in multi-million euro contracts for products and services. The scheme will provide collaborative research projects, the provision of education, training services and collaboration on the creation of a trade corridor to facilitate the introduction of Irish exporters to the Inner Mongolia region. The Dairy United/UCD link was established through contacts made by Enterprise Ireland over the past 18 months. The announcement was made during this week's Food and Agri-services mission to China led by Simon Coveney TD.
