A HISTORIC AGREEMENT on agricultural cooperation between the Philippines and South Korea was reached on the eve of another memorable occasion marking 70 years of friendship between the two countries.

Agriculture Secretary MANNY PIÑOL and Acting Minister Kim Hyeon-soo of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (MAFRA) of South Korea today (Monday) signed the Memorandum of Understanding on Agricultural Cooperation which took a long time for discussion and negotiations.

The first Comprehensive Agreement on Agricultural Cooperation, which will now serve as the “Mother Document” of all succeeding cooperation agreements, was reached as the Philippines and South Korea mark the 70th year of friendship next year.

Official ties between Manila and Seoul began on March 3, 1949 when the Philippines became the fifth country to extend diplomatic recognition to South Korea, six months after its inauguration on August 15, 1948.

BOND TESTED DURING KOREAN WAR

This bond was cemented a year later at the outbreak of the Korean War, when the Philippines deployed more than 7,000 soldiers to join an international coalition to help South Korea defend itself from the invasion of the communist North.

Sec. Piñol said the MOU is one of the major agreements before today’s Bilateral Meeting between President Duterte and President Moon Jae-In.

In spite of existing cooperation projects implemented by the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), Sec. Piñol noted that both sides overlooked the fact that there was no Mother Document that set the parameters of the cooperation.

ONE YEAR IN THE MAKING

Last year,  Sec. Piñol travelled to South Korea to present to then MAFRA Minister Kim Jae-Soo the draft MOU for their consideration. But the change in government, however, delayed the progress.

With the signing of  MOU on Agricultural Cooperation, various activities are now being lined up, including technology transfer on mechanization and irrigation, the Agriculture secretary said.

Philippine Ambassador to South Korea Raul Hernandez and DA Agriculture Attache Maria Alelia Maghirang and several Philippine and South Korean officials witnessed the signing of the agreement. (PM)
