FITTINGLY a Chinese proverb best describes the opportunities, both academic and business, presented on my recent trip to China - Learning is like the horizon: there is no limit.

To see up close the emerging global world force that is China, was in itself a major industry and educational opportunity. But to be able to promote the exceptional quality of education, skills, research and innovation which our own agri-food and equine industry possess, was equally rewarding.

During the six-day visit I met with key players in the Chinese agri-food and equine sectors allowing me to highlight the quality and safety of the north of Ireland’s agri-food products, the underpinning scientific expertise and the excellent education and training available to our equine sector.
