Charting the Course: Food Security & Trade in the Asia-Pacific & LAC Region
International Food & Agricultural Trade Policy Council ^ | May 17 - 18, 2012 | Staff

The broader Asia-Pacific region—encompassing countries in Asia, North, Central and South America, and Oceania—accounts for more than half of both global GDP and the world’s food supply, includes key food exporters and importers, and encompasses populations with rising incomes and transforming diets, alongside subsistence agriculture and urban poor. It is not surprising that food and agricultural policy issues have moved front and center on the agendas of the region’s policymakers, farm groups, food industry and civil society. Given its prominent role in both global food production and consumption, efforts to promote food security and forge new trade ties in the Asia-Pacific region will surely resonate around the world.

The IDB and IPC are pleased to convene a seminar to take stock of food policy related developments and initiatives in the region. High-level speakers will include policymakers, private sector representatives and academics from the region and feature discussions about a number of food security, trade and regulatory initiatives occurring in the region. Participants will actively engage in shaping recommendations aimed at promoting food security and a more open, productive and sustainable food and trade system.

Sorry guys, looks like you missed out on last week's little "conference" in DC.

Globalist agriculture elites "charted the course" for determining who could eat what and how much they would pay for the privilege.

Be sure to visit to find out what they have planned for you to be allowed to eat !
