Food Agri & Aqua Business Sector Committee (FAASC)

General information

The Food, Agri and Aqua Business sector is important for Vietnam. The FAASC believes that it will remain important in the future as well. The FAASC believes that the Food, Agri and Aqua Business sector can become stronger, more competitive and more high-tech without detrimental effects for the population, country and the environment. On the contrary, the FAASC believes that the sector in the long-term could become more sustainable without necessarily increasing the costs.
