The Habibie Center, in collaboration with the Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs of The Republic of Indonesia, BINUS University International, Indonesia Services Dialogue, and The AEC Center of the Ministry of Trade of The Republic of Indonesia cordially invites you to attend our special edition of
Talking ASEAN: The Business Series
Potential Roles of Trade and Investment in Promoting Food Security in ASEAN
The Launching of Agriculture in ASEAN: Trade and Investment Guidebook
Food security remains a major policy concern for many countries, including those in Southeast Asia. Global climate change, rising demand for food as a result of population growth, international food price volatility, poverty, and conflict are said to be some of major contributors to food insecurity. There has also been increased recognition that a lack of investment in agriculture and related infrastructure, barriers to trade (especially with respect to agricultural and food products), and insufficient regional cooperation and coordination are also factors contributing to food insecurity worldwide. Securing a balance between food security and trade openness, therefore, remains a challenge of ASEAN.
