Regional Agro-industries Forum for Asia and the Pacific
The aim of the Regional Agro-Industries Forum for Asia and the Pacific (RAIF-AP) is to assist governments of member countries in the Asia-Pacific region in creating an enabling environment that will allow industry stakeholders to develop competitive agro-industries that incorporate smallholders as significant stakeholders in agrifood supply chains.
The objectives of the forum include:
- to discuss best practices from the Asia-Pacific region for implementation at national and local levels of agro-industrial strategies of relevance to member countries
- to promote a dialogue among the private sector, governments and smallholders
- to facilitate the emergence of multi-stakeholder programmes for agro-industries development based on concrete cases from member countries in the region.
