Global population growth is continuously increasing. By 2050 the population number is estimated to reach nine billion, leading to an increased food demand of 40% in the same period. Southeast Asia, which is one of the main areas contributing to this development, is additionally characterized by a rapidly growing middle class. Increasing food demand, growing labor shortages, more competition and therefore the requirement for reduced production costs, are the main drivers for change in the Southeast Asian agriculture.
Besides that, many governmental institutions are promoting the faster implementation of agriculture 4.0.
In addition, the regional integration in economic cooperation, food trade development and agri-innovations for sustainable food production are boosted by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in all Southeast-Asian countries.
In order to be prepared for these challenges and the opportunities arising, the Agrifuture Conference & Exhibition will address these topics with influential stakeholders to become ready for tomorrow’s agri business.
