EBARA CORPORATION (“EBARA”), a leading pump manufacturer, held seminars on pumps on July 15 and 16, at Myanmar Engineering Society in Yangon, Myanmmar. Approximately, a total of 52 participants attended, from government agencies and private-sector companies.
Agriculture is an important industry in Myanmar, accounting for nearly half of GDP. The entire country is putting an effort into irrigation, and the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation, which has jurisdiction over agriculture, has a Pump Division. Meanwhile, in the rapidly developing urban areas, measures to prevent the inundation of roads due to heavy rains is an urgent issue. In this seminar, we focused on basic knowledge about pumps used in irrigation and flood control measures as well as basic plans for facilities.
EBARA has continued deepening its relationships around the world through technical guidance and other forms of international cooperation. Since the launch of the EBARA Hatakeyama Memorial Fund in 1989, it has organized up to 250 seminars at different locations in the world, welcoming upwards of 11,000 participants. This year, EBARA is set to give 10 seminars all over the world in Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Colombia, Peru and other locations.
EBARA will continue to contribute to the development of Southeast Asian and South American countries not only by offering pumps and other products and services, but through technical seminars and other international cooperation activities.
