The MOU was signed with the witness of JETRO’s representative as the first official step for the cooperation between KOFU and TLU in introducing the breath pipe in Vietnam.

The MOU Signing Ceremony was held at TLU, Hanoi 

For the past years, TLU and the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), a government-related organization that works to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world, have cooperated for the development of academic training and the connection between TLU and the Japanese enterprises.

KOFU is known as a private company that researches and promotes new green technology in agriculture. One of the signature products of KOFU is “breath pipe” which is made from natural substances and aims to improve the soil conditions and help the trees to grow twice faster.

In 2018, thanks to JETRO’s recommendation, KOFU has been working with TLU on the common strengths in agricultural land improvement and biotechnology products. The two sides decide to sign an MOU on research cooperation and technology transfer, specifically:

(1) cooperation in agricultural technology development,

(2) cooperation in technology transfer (breath pipe), and

(3) human resources development.
