KATHMANDU: With an aim to facilitate the exchange of experience and knowledge regarding the Master’s Scholarship program, KOICA Nepal Office, in partnership with HICAST College, Kirtipur, conducted a Knowledge Sharing Program.

Each year, KAAN arranges a program dedicated to knowledge sharing, providing a platform for the dissemination of the expertise gained by KOICA’s Masters Fellows, a statement issued by KOICA Nepal Office, said.

As part of the event, Puruswattam Bahadur Rauniyar, a recent graduate of KOICA’s Master’s Degree Scholarship Program 2021 and an Agriculture Officer for the Prime Minister Agriculture Modernization Project of the Government of Nepal, shared the insights gained from his thesis, along with his experiences and knowledge acquired during his time in Korea, it said.

In his presentation “Assessing the Technical Efficiency of Rice Producers in Parsa District, Nepal”, he highlighted the importance of the program.

It may be noted that Parsa is known for its high rice productivity within the Madhesh province, and also has been designated as one of the rice zone districts under the Prime Minister Agriculture Modernization Project.
