Register for Strengthening Thai-New Zealand Business-Academic Partnerships.

Abstract
The 60th anniversary of Thailand-New Zealand diplomatic relations marks an important opportunity to strengthen economic partnership between the two countries, which promises to bring economic and social benefits to all parties involved. The pasture-based dairy industry is a long-established part of the New Zealand heritage that consistently shows high economic contribution. Even though New Zealand is one of the leading global competitors in dairy products, its dairy industry continues to grow and innovate, consolidating over time and diversifying the nation’s exports in more than 100 markets around the world. New Zealand’s experience and expertise in farm management of information, automation technologies, herd testing and artificial breeding service, DNA analysis, and farm advisory service are ripe for productive collaboration with Thailand that could help enhance the dairy production to greater sustainability and profitability. The Royal Thai Embassy in New Zealand is currently in the process of identifying potential Thai partners to collaborate through businessacademic linkage, as well as acting as a facilitator between the dairy companies in Thailand and New Zealand.

In addition, Thailand as part of ASEAN which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, will continue to play a leading role in developing dairy industry business-academic partnerships for the benefit of member countries of ASEAN.
