Union Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation Dr Aung Thu inspected construction of a new fisheries training institute in Twantay Township, Yangon, yesterday.
Located in Zeebyugone village beside Maubin-Twantay-Yangon motorway, the institute is under construction with K889.54 million from 2018-2019 Financial Year. At the completion, it will confer diplomas on fisheries subjects ahead of establishing a university-level.
The Union Minister also visited the ministry’s laboratory in Thakayta Township in Yangon for microbiological screening tests to detect antibiotic residues.
He instructed the officials to track modern technologies and to maintain it as an international level facility as it has secured the ISO/IEC 17025:2005 Accredited Certificate for the 4-year period from 2018 to 2020 to issue quality certificates for fisheries products of Myanmar.
The laboratory has been awarded the 16 international accreditation certificates, including for microbiology parameter, chemical parameter, nitrofuran tests and heavy metal tests.
It is being upgraded and equipped with laboratory apparatuses to meet requirements for the certification period 2020-2022 while practicing the ISO/IEC new version 17025: 2017.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
