SEAFDEC/AQD and St. Paul University Iloilo (SPU) extend their partnership for another five years by signing a new Memorandum of Understanding on 30 July 2014 at AQD’s Tigbauan Main Station, Iloilo, Philippines.

The five-year agreement aims to: (1) develop collaborative training and extension programs in line with the common goals and objectives of both institutions, (2) promote the exchange of scientists and researchers for instruction, training and other related activities, and (3) strengthen the capabilities of AQD and SPU in the field of aquaculture, fisheries, aquatic and related sciences with emphasis on environmental concerns.

The first AQD-SPU collaboration in 2009 had similar objectives with the current agreement and was also good for five years.
