Agricultural Internships Abroad

Today our agronomist Albert leaves for China, where he will serve a three month internship in Central China’s Hunan Province, improving his skills in cereal cropping and vegetable production.

This is Albert’s fourth foreign internship, having worked in vegetable greenhouses in Massachusets, USA twice and in a floriculture enterprise in South Australia for an extended period.

We notice employees returning from internships bring back fresh new ideas, have improved problems solving skills and can more effectively research solutions independently without supervision. I could not recommend this for Georgian agribusinesses too strongly; a 3-12 month sabbatical for promising young professionals can yield very substantial results.
