“Sustainable Agri-Food Business Solutions” is one of the challenges on APEC 2022 in Bangkok this July. To promote long-term growth that is resilient, inclusive, balanced, and sustainable for agri-food businesses, APEC 2022 will explore how technology can help farmers and entrepreneurs in the Asia – Pacific to access knowledge on bio-circular-green (BCG) production techniques and more market opportunities for the green economy. Thani Thongphakdi, Thailand’s Chair of the APEC 2022 Senior Officials said “APEC 2022 ’s theme of Digital Solutions for Sustainable Agri-Food Business embraces the core idea of the BCG economy to stronger, greener, and more resilient economic growth through the use and sharing of green innovation and digital tools.” “The COVID-19 pandemic has made it clear how much of a difference innovative digital applications can make,” said Dr. Rebecca Sta Maria, Executive Director of the APEC Secretariat.
