 The APTERR field trip on rice cultivation and logistic system in Thailand was held for all staff members to learn and gain experiences for improving APTERR operations by visiting the Rice Seed Centre and the Laemchabang Port in Chonburi province as well as the Kung Krabaen Bay Royal Development Study Centre and the Wangkaset Garden in Chanthaburi province from 28 to 30 November 2016.

On 28 November 2016, APTERR staff members visited the Rice Seed Centre in Chonburi province to learn about its objectives and operations for development of rice cultivation and food security in Thailand. The Chonburi Rice Seed Centre under the Rice Department, the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives of Thailand has main functions to produce and distribute rice seeds to farmers for food security. This centre also improves livelihood and provides assistance to farmers affected by disasters.

On 29 November 2016 in Chanthaburi province, APTERR staff members visited the Kung Krabaen Bay Royal Development Study Centre to learn about the exercise of the self-sufficiency economy principle for sustainable agricultural development, natural resource management, and ecology preservation. This royal centre promotes organic rice cultivation along with job creation in surrounding communities without natural degradation. Afterwards, APTERR staff members visited the Wangkaset Garden which also incorporates the self-sufficiency principle for management of integrated farming of rice, vegetables, and fruits.

On 30 November 2016, APTERR staff members visited the Laemchabang Port in Chonburi province to learn about the logistic systems. This deep-seawater port is managed by public and private partnership with comprehensive components of a traffic system and storage of containers, quality control of exported products, and unloading facilities. This port is the important infrastructure of Thailand for international trade of industrial and agricultural products.
