10 Economic Strategic Directions Conference 2017

About the Conference World trade in food and agriculture products has expanded rapidly in recent decades and the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations estimated that the international agriculture trade volume in 2015 was valued at USD 16,000 billion (FAO, 2017). A progressive, modern and sustainable agribusiness and food sector will not only provide opportunities for Malaysia to benefit from the increased world agriculture trade, it may also raise income, alleviate poverty and improve food security for the country. In addition to the adoption and application of advance production technologies and marketing innovations as well as efficient utilization of land and capital resources, the involvement of young agro-entrepreneurs will also contribute to the development of a progressive, modern and sustainable agribusiness and food sector in Malaysia.
Thus the theme of this conference “Empowering Malaysian Youth in Agribusiness” aims at spurring interest and encouraging greater involvement of Malaysian youth in agribusiness. The panel speakers for the conference comprises both Malaysian and foreign experts as well as successful entrepreneurs in agribusiness. They shall present and share their views, ideas, expertise and experiences on various aspects of the agribusiness chain, including agriculture and agro-entrepreneurship, agriculture financing, technological advances in agriculture, innovations and technologies in downstream industries, e-marketing, converting agricultural wastes to wealth, and consumer behaviour.
