MetadataShow full item record
The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources(BFAR) urged member economies of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) to include agriculture and fisheries in their investment promotion priorities to address food security issues in the region. Opening the APEC Policy Partnership on Food Security (PPFS) Meeting in Iloilo Friday, BFAR director Asis Perez said food security "goes beyond increased food production" and involves availability and accessibility of foodstuff. The PPFS is a forum for stakeholders in the public and private agriculture and food institutions in APEC member economies.
