Asian Agri-business Topics

Agri-Business from the Nexus of Food Safety and Public Health

The Chinese agri-food industry has changed rapidly over the past two years, especially considering the challenges related to African swine fever (ASF) and COVID-19. However, the industry remains committed to strengthening consumer trust and protecting public health. What role will technology play, and how will the industry be reshaped as a result? Join us as leading experts discuss the essential role of agriculture in supporting food safety, as well as what the future holds for the world’s second-largest economy.

Changemakers: The Youth-Led Environmental Movement

Growing up near the rice fields and beaches of Bali, Melati Wijsen saw the impact of plastic waste firsthand, as it littered the landscape and endangered local wildlife. She was spurred into action, and at just 12 years old, Melati and her younger sister, Isabel, founded Bye Bye Plastic Bags, with a mission to rid the world of plastic bags and empower young people to take action. Hear from Melati on the youth-led movement to build a brighter future and what this could mean for business leaders.
