Myanmar and China to cooperate on veterinary laboratory project

YANGON, May 13 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar and China have signed the document on the implementation of a veterinary laboratory project in Myanmar, the Chinese Embassy said in a statement to the media.

The documents were signed in Myanmar's capital Nay Pyi Taw on Wednesday.

The China-aided project is aimed at facilitating the integration of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (Asean) and will be implemented under the Initiative for Asean Integration (IAI), an ASsean programme that China assists.

The project involves building a veterinary laboratory, providing laboratory equipment and training the personnel, the embassy's statement said.

It will help increase Myanmar's capacity for prevention, control, diagnosing and monitoring of animal diseases in the South-East Asian country, according to the statement.

China signed a similar agreement on vet lab project with Cambodia last year.

China-aided projects in Myanmar cover the sectors of agriculture, poverty reduction, culture, arts, and education, aiming to promote local people's well-being. - Xinhua
