The Embassy of Denmark in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia recently highlighted the importance of the agricultural cooperation between Denmark and Malaysia.
The Embassy explains:
“The agricultural cooperation between Denmark and Malaysia has come a long way since the signing of the MoU in September 2016. Major areas of cooperation include livestock; and fisheries and aquaculture – sectors that are crucial for food security in Malaysia. Having this cooperation is timely since Denmark is a frontrunner in innovative, sustainable, and efficient agriculture and food production.
The Danish food cluster is well-known worldwide for its strongholds in areas like food quality and safety, sustainability, organic food production, gastronomy, health, ingredients, innovative technology, and the unique Danish way of collaborating.
Over the past years, two joint working groups involving high-level delegations from Malaysia to Denmark and vice versa had been held. Two technical working groups that focus solely on livestock; and fisheries and aquaculture were established to support knowledge-sharing and technological transfer. In the last meeting, there were also suggestions to include food waste and circular economy into the MoU.
The MoU has been the stepping stone for the excellent cooperation with Malaysia and for Danish companies to be well established in the Malaysian market. The Danish government remains committed to the continued cooperation between the two countries, when the Embassy of Denmark in Jakarta takes over the responsibility beginning June 1, 2021.”
