Agriculture Forum

GOAL/MISSION

The purpose of the Agriculture Forum is to establish a platform for members interested in agriculture to meet regularly to discuss industry issues, challenges, and opportunities. The Forum also helps facilitate cooperative relationships with Chinese organizations on food security, food safety, and agriculture productivity through bilateral dialogues and educational activities. The Agriculture Forum regularly holds meetings among members to share and update information in the industry and pays close attention to issues such as labor, land and water. Recently a number of Chinese officials were invited to a series of policy debriefing events to discuss china food security strategies and policies with Forum members.
