2021 Virtual Business Mission to the 43rd ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Agriculture and Forestry (AMAF)
The US-ASEAN Business Council would like to invite you to the 2021 Virtual Business Mission to the 43rd ASEAN Ministerial Meeting of Agriculture and Forestry (AMAF). The Plenary session will take place virtually on Wednesday, October 20. The mission will include a presentation by the F&A Committee to the 10 ASEAN Agriculture Ministers during the Plenary session and will propose bilateral meetings with priority ASEAN Agricultural Ministries. This year, on the sidelines of the AMAF, the Council will organize a joint virtual ASEAN-wide workshop on Safe Nutritious Food in collaboration with Crop Life Asia and EU-ABC.
This is the Council's 7th consecutive mission to the AMAF, and the mission continues a critical part of our yearly engagements in ASEAN. The themes of the mission will be centered on how ASEAN can adapt to improve food safety, sustainability, and security to facilitate the region's economic recovery. It will also be an opportunity for members to raise crucial issues facing the F&A space, such as the promulgation of new agri-technologies, the promotion of intra- and extra-ASEAN agricultural trade, improving the well-being and productivity of agricultural communities, and above all, fostering public-private collaboration on food systems.
The deadline for registration and submission of materials is COB October 15 (SGT).
