     During 19-24 August 2016 CATAS-RRI delegation of three, headed by CATAS vice president Prof. Zhang Yishan, visited agricultural and forestry departments of Vanuatu and Fiji as well as China-aided agricultural projects in Vanuatu and Fiji to have a good picture of the status quo of production, economic and trade of agriculture and problems arising in production, processing and trade with the view of seeking possible collaboration with these departments. Prof. Zhou Jiannan, CATASRRI senior officer for international cooperation, and Associate Prof. Zeng Xianhai, are members of the delegation. The delegation also visited the oil palm plantations run by the Vanuatu Palm Oil Co. Ltd and technically supported by CATAS-RRI for 10 successive years. A MOU was signed between CATAS and the Forestry Department of the Northern Region of Vanuatu to establish jointly an Agricultural Experimental Station. This visit is a great success although very short.
