If you are a young farmer and fancy a free trip to China, then keep reading!

The EU have recently launched a programme which plans to send young farmers on an exchange programme to China, as reported by fwi.co.uk.

The aim of the programme is to send ten young farmers, under 40, to share their knowledge of the industry and farming experience. It also aims to hold numerous farm visits and discussions, visit research institutes, government meetings and numerous training workshops.Â

The programme, launched in April, by Phil Hogan and the farming Minister of China, Han Changfu. The project will offer young farmers a chance to see how the farming industry works in China as well as the various different challenges faced by the Chinese farming sector.Â

The project's main focus will be on sustainable farming and also environmental practices, with farmers encouraged to share their past experiences. The findings of the project will be published into a recommendation and shared with a wide farming community. While it will also be shared with chief policy makers in the industry at a conference in China by the end of 2018.Â

Farmers interested must be under 40 years of age, and only 10 will be chosen for the first trip. A second voyage has already been planned, with another group of ten expected to make the journey in June 2018.Â

The trip will completely funded by the EU Commission and the Chinese government.

Closing date for applications is September 10th. To apply or for more information please visit here.
