The Government of Myanmar has donated 15,000 Teak seeds for the purpose of developing agro-forestry in Sri Lanka subsequent to a request by Sri Lanka at the 3rd Session of the Joint Commission on Bilateral Cooperation between the two countries, in April 2019.   


The Sri Lankan Embassy in Yangon said the ceremonial event to hand over the high quality teak seeds was held at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation of Myanmar in Nay Pyi Taw on December 12.   


On behalf of the Government of Sri Lanka, Ambassador Nandimithra Ekanayake received the seeds from the Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation of Myanmar, Dr. Ye Myint Swe.   


The donated teak seeds have been collected from the genetically selected teak clonal seed orchard in Myanmar which was established in 1996. Conservation of teak genetic resources in Myanmar was started in the 1980s as a project of East Pegu Yoma Project (EPP) with the support of the Asian Development Bank.
