                        FFTC Director Dr. Kuo-Ching Lin

It is a great honor and privilege for me to serve as the new Director of FFTC. The Center has a long history of excellence in the field of information dissemination on timely and relevant agricultural technologies and agri policies. I am happy that I am now working with a dynamic group of people who are passionate about agriculture. Together, we aim to make our humble contribution to fulfill the Center’s vision—to help empower the small-scale farmers in the Asian Pacific region through science and information.

Together with our country partners, I hope we will be able to continue what FFTC has been trailblazing for more than 40 years. We also hope to be able to create innovations in order to address the constantly evolving issues in our ever changing agricultural landscape.

We can only do this through your strong support. We therefore welcome your feedback and constructive criticisms and we hope that we can all join hands in doing our share in uplifting the quality of lives of our agricultural workers in the Asian Pacific region.
