ICLPT 50th Anniversary
ICLPT 50th Anniversary
Since its inception in 1968, international training has always been one of the core functions of the Center.  Annually the Center holds various training courses, inviting participants of mid-career officials and professionals from all over the world to attend them. Up to the present, more than 17,000 trainees from 132 countries have completed trainings or seminars at the Center.  This has helped the Center to establish an expansive network of experts in the fields of land and agriculture, which has been widely recognized.  Since their return from the training, participants have made substantial contribution to the societal and economic development of their countries.  In view of this important milestone of the 50th anniversary, we decided to hold a celebration so as to mark the achievements. This celebration also aims to accentuate the significance of training in land and agriculture and memorize the efforts made by Taiwan and the United States in promoting progress and prosperity for the world over the past half a century.
