University College Dublin (UCD) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a leading Chinese dairy producer Dairy United. The MOU which will result in multi-million euro contracts for products and services, envisages the development of a China-Ireland Agricultural demonstration farm in Hohhot(Inner Mongolia), collaborative research projects, the provision of education and training services, and collaboration on the creation of a trade corridor to facilitate the introduction of Irish exporters to the Inner Mongolian region. The Dairy United/UCD link was established through contacts made by Enterprise Ireland over the past 18 months.

UCD will be collaborating with a number of Irish agricultural equipment and services companies to deliver an integrated package of education and training, research, services and technology to Dairy United.
