- Zoomlion collaborates with the Lao Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry to jointly develop a standards system for Lao agricultural machinery
CHANGSHA, China, Sept. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- On September 5, Zoomlion and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Laos signed a memorandum of understanding for collaboration on standardization in Vientiane, Laos. Both sides will boost technological and agricultural collaboration, seriously promoting exchanges and mutual learning in areas such as agricultural machinery standards, agricultural techniques and practices, agricultural services and financial support.
It is understood that Laos currently lacks standardized benchmarks for the farm machinery industry. The varied quality of agricultural machinery products entering the Lao market, coupled with inconsistent support services, hampers the sustainable growth of the Lao agricultural machinery sector.
As a global leader in high-end equipment manufacturing, Zoomlion has extensive R&D experience and manufacturing capabilities in areas such as agricultural machinery. Its range of agricultural machinery products covers rainfed crops, paddy fields, cash crops and post-harvest treatment machinery. Zoomlion is the first Chinese institution honored with the qualification of long-term supplier of agricultural machinery by the United Nations, supplying high-end equipment and systematic solutions necessary for tillage, planting, management, harvesting and drying in more than 60 countries around the world.
Zoomlion has extensive experience in standards development. In China alone, the company has reviewed and established 455 national and industry standards. In 2012, he became Secretary of the Crane Technical Committee of the International Organization for Standardization and, to date, has led and participated in the review and establishment of 23 international standards.
Beyond the coincidence of needs and strengths, both entities have previously been extensively involved in agricultural collaboration, laying solid foundations for this deeper partnership. It is known that Zoomlion's agricultural machinery entered the Laotian market in 2021. In 2022, they donated specific machines such as seeders, transplanters, and tractors to Laos. Zoomlion launched its flagship agricultural machinery store in Vientiane last February, gradually establishing a comprehensive service system covering sales, user training, parts supply, after-sales service and leasing.
Zhan Chunxin, Chairman and CEO of Zoomlion, expressed his sincere appreciation for the deep trust placed in them by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Laos. He stressed that Zoomlion will work together with Laotian experts to jointly create a scientific and standardized Laotian agricultural machinery system, jointly promoting mutual technical integration, standard recognition and industry benefits, so as to create more value. for the sustained growth of the agricultural machinery industries of both countries.
