The 12th Training Workshop on Rice Technology Transfer Systems (RTTS) in Asia was held at Suwon, Korea on 21 April-2 May 2014. RTTS was a joint collaboration of the IRRI Training Center (TC) and the International Technology Cooperation Center (ITCC) Rural Development Administration (RDA). This annual event aimed to showcase South Korea’s latest rice technology systems and agricultural linkages as well as to inspire and share rice farming knowledge that could be applicable to the participating South East Asian countries.
Since 2002, RTTS has served as an avenue for knowledge sharing and rice technology transfer among participating countries. These countries were Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Philippines, Sri Lanka, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Training Center’s Head Noel P. Magor, and Senior Training Specialist Ms. Maria Socorro S. Arboleda were workshop resource persons together with the resource persons from ITCC RDA.
