Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Prof. Dr. Vahit Kirişci came together with 60 students from 30 countries at the "World Food Safety Meeting with International Guest Students" event in the Meeting Hall of the Central Research Institute of Field Crops.
Minister Kirişci pointed out in his speech that guest students should be a bridge between the two countries and this would improve the relations between the relevant two countries in every sense.
Emphasizing that Turkey has undergone a great change and transformation in the last 20 years and has a great potential, Minister Kirişci drew attention to the fact that it is possible to reach more than 50 countries with a 3-4 hour flight. Kirişci said that guest students in the country should also benefit from this potential.
After having a talk with the students, Minister Kirişci then toured the Turkey Seed Gene Bank, where 119 thousand seed samples belonging to about 3,400 species are under conservation.
