    Background: TAIWAN FARMING EXPERTS ARE GIVING TECHNICAL ADVICE FREE TO FARMING SPECIALISTS FROM AFRICA, SOUTH EAST ASIA AND EVEN LATIN AMERICA.

    THEY EXPLAIN TAIWAN'S SUCCESS IN PROGRAMMES OF INTENSIVE FERTILISATION, ANIMAL HUSBANDRY AND WATER CONSERVATION. THE STUDENTS LEARN HOW THE TAIWAN CHINESE OBTAIN WHAT IS CLAIMED TO BE THE HIGHEST RICE YIELD PER ACRE IN THE WORLD. ALSO ON THE COURSE IS A STUDY OF TAIWAN LAND REFORM - A SYSTEM WHICH HAS MADE MORE THAN 80 PERCENT OF TAIWAN'S FARMERS OWNERS OF THE LAND THEY TILL.

    THE AFRICANS FILMED HERE, ARE PARTICIPANTS IN A TRAINING PROGRAMME KNOWN AS THE AGRICULTURAL SEMINAR FOR AFRICAN FARM SPECIALISTS. THEY HAVE COME FROM 20 AFRICAN COUNTRIES TO ATTEND THE SEMINAR, THE THIRD OF ITS KIND IN TWO YEARS SPONSORED BY THE TAIWAN GOVERNMENT.

    TAIWAN HAS ALSO SENT MORE THAN 200 FARM INSTRUCTORS TO THE EMERGING NATIONS OF AFRICA.
