Expert Group Meeting on the ASEAN Economic Community and Food Security

This meeting aims to explore which elements of the AEC may impact one or more of the components of the food ecosystem, and in doing so, affect the food security of the ASEAN region generally, and Singapore more specifically (as a case study country which imports over 90 per cent of its food). In general, agriculture trade affects the food security ecosystem by fostering economic growth and hence farm income, by adding to domestic food supplies to meet consumption needs, and by reducing food supply variability. 

The meeting will provide a forum for experts to share their assessments of how the AEC may offer opportunities and pose challenges for the food ecosystem at two thinking horizons – 2020 and 2030. The effects of the AEC on intra-regional trade will focus on rice, fresh vegetables and fruits, eggs and fish.
