X. Establishment of African
Industrial Research Center
The African Industrial Research
Center is established in National Chung University in 2020. The mission
of this ARC is introduced as follows:
Africa's land area and population
are second only to Asia, ranking second in the world. In recent years,
it is a major regional market with considerable development potential in
the future. However, the economic scale of the African region is still
in the development stage, and various products such as people's
livelihoods, household appliances and mechanical equipment must rely on
imports. The basic manufacturing is relatively weak and agricultural
production technology needs to be strengthened.
According to the field observation
of the Kingdom of Eswatini and Mozambique, there are abundant
agricultural production resources of the two countries. The development
of agricultural production based on high-economic crops and animal
protein sources are prior mission. The introduction of mechanization and
information technology could accelerate the country's agricultural
modernization progress. An integrated agricultural production plan is
established for the Kingdom of Eswatini. Its content covers the
comprehensive production of aquatic products, agricultural products and
livestock products. Take into account both production efficiency and
sustainable resource protection. It is planned to focus on production in
the short term and start production for aquaculture and vegetables to
increase the source of animal protein and economic income of the
country. In the medium term, we will cooperate with neighboring
countries, improve the production and marketing system, and expand the
international market. The long term project is the talent cultivation
and sustainable industry management for the African industry.
