 On October 1st 2014, The Myanmar Minister for Agriculture, Mr. Myinth Hlaing, has been assisted by UNIDO ITPO Italy during the visit to the Cooperative Ortosole, a family-run farm situated in Maccarese (Rome).  The farm occupies more than 400 hectares of crops where it cultivates all kinds of fruits and vegetables respecting the highest environmental sustainability standards. The organization of the visit has been possible thanks to the collaboration of Sprint Lazio, the agency for the internationalization of firms in the Lazio Region.

This visit is part of a project developed by UNIDO ITPO Italy, in collaboration with the Ministry for the Italian Economical Development (MISE), aimed to promote the development of some particular sectors of the Myanmar economy, such as the agricultural one. During the company visit the Minister has had the opportunity to discover the functioning of a typical Italian farm. Particularly, attention was paid to the greenhouse crops and the irrigation systems.

The company visit is the concrete result of the constant activity carried out by UNIDO ITPO Italy in order to promote the potentials and the business opportunities offered by the country.
