Press Release

The 2nd Annual Food Security & Sustainability Summit which is supported by APEC Policy Partnership on Food Security, Returns For The Second Year To Tackle The World Emergency Food Crisis

23 June 2022, Singapore – Midway into 2002, the issue of food security has worsened, resulting from the effects of the Ukrainian war, creating food shortages and inflation.   Compounded with the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change, the burdens placed on humanity have become even more severe.

The criticality of these issues facing human survival has prompted the 2nd Food Security & Sustainability Summit to be hosted earlier this year on 30 June to 1 July 2022.  The event is supported by Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Policy Partnership on Food Security (PPFS); with line-up of speakers from Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH), Aquatic Animal Health Standards Commission (AAHC) and National Food and Strategic Reserves Administration (NAFRA) of China.

High profile representatives from these transnational organisations will present their latest findings, policy recommendations and initiatives at the intergovernmental level to address food security.  Much anticipated is the speech by Ms Zhang Yi from China’s National Food and Strategic Reserves Administration (NAFRA) on China’s strategy to strengthen and lead in the race for self-sufficiency in the food production.  A closed-door onsite luncheon meeting among government officials, NGOs and senior executives will be held at Singapore Sheraton Hotel on 5 July 2022.

Dr Koh Poh Koon, Senior Minister of State for Manpower and Sustainability and the Environment, will be delivering the opening address for the event while Associate Professor Matthew Tan, the Co-Chair for Sustainable Development in Agriculture & Fishery Sectors for APEC Policy Partnership on Food Security will chair the event.

The event theme: “Innovation at lightspeed” will set the tone for this year’s event, featuring discussions on latest technological innovations driving food production that will become a game changer for the food sector.  The summit will invite multi stakeholders from governmental organisations, private sector businesses and NGOs to address the current disruptions and possible solutions on the world food supply chain.  Discussions will also include issues surrounding sustainability and how societies and businesses can design more sustainable solutions in their entire food chain to minimize impact to the environment and reduce food waste.  The event will also devote sufficient attention to the future of nutrition in these exciting times.
