Maintaining International Food Security

  The Council of Agriculture (COA), through promotion of the Regional Food Security Action Plan, and since initiating the APEC multi-year program entitled “Strengthening Public-Private Partnership to Reduce Food Losses in the Supply Chain” in 2013, has effectively upgraded the understanding that both the public and private sectors in APEC members have of food losses and waste. The COA has constructed a model for cooperation between the public and private sectors and member economies, and has made concrete contributions toward regional food security, winning international approbation. Moreover, this kind of partnership was incorporated into the “Can Tho Statement” as one of the five main themes.
