Always the gracious host, MYAGRI opened its door to 30 delegates from Egypt comprising scientists, lecturers and government officials who were in Malaysia for the Technology Commercialization Workshop organized by Malaysian Technology Development Corporation (MTDC). This is part of the Malaysian Technical Cooperation Program under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Malaysia and managed by MTDC.
Puan Hayati Taib, Group Managing Director of MYAGRI presented on the Group’s activities, achievements and both local and international on-going projects. She welcomed any potential research or business collaborations with the delegates. Puan Hayati also hoped that this will be the start of a fruitful cooperation between MYAGRI and organizations in Egypt.
To enable the delegates to understand MYAGRI better, they were brought to the bio-manufacturing laboratories where the microbial based products are produced. We hope the visitors understood the commercialization processes as explained by Puan Hayati and as seen at MYAGRI’s Bio-manufacturing Complex.
