It also explores the actions and policy options that could be pursued. Three themes are examined: (i) improving food safety and quality; (ii) inclusive and sustainable, safe and environment-friendly agriculture products; and (iii) value chains for safe and environment-friendly agriculture products. This aligns with the ASEAN Economic Community blueprint, which calls for the creation of a single market and production base for food, agriculture, forestry; and integration of the region into the global economy.
