Food security a growing concern in Apec
MetadataShow full item record
Recognizing the growing concern of food security in the region, member-economies of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) are pushing for the greater role of the private sector to enhance competitiveness and promote sustainability. Undersecretary Asis Perez, PPFS presiding chair, said the policy declarations were focused on a food security road map to 2020, sustainable development of agriculture and the fishery sectors, facilitation of investment and infrastructure development, and enhancing trade and market. Perez said Apec member-economies were convinced that climate change was a threat to food security especially in the Asia-Pacific region.
