New Zealand Study Tour for Sri Lanka Senior Dairy Industry Officials

In 2017, a four-day study tour to New Zealand for the selected Sri Lankan senior dairy officials was conducted. The study tour was designed in response to the recommendation of Mr Keerthi Mihiripenna, Chairman of MILCO Private Limited, that a study tour to New Zealand would be highly valuable for the Sri Lankan participants to observe New Zealand’s dairy industry and become familiar with its technologies and practices that can be applied in Sri Lanka. The experience and knowledge from the study tour will then be shared within Sri Lanka for the benefit of Sri Lankan dairy farmers and used to strengthen relationships between Sri Lanka and New Zealand.
