The Asia-Pacific Agri-Food Innovation Summit is delighted to again welcome Temasek as our Key Partner. Robin Hu, Head of Sustainability & Stewardship Group at Temasek addresses his welcoming remarks to kick start these three days of agri-food insights, partnership and discovery.
“Reinventing food production through high-tech farming can make food production less resource intensive and more sustainable. Technology can help us develop more sustainable, nutritious and affordable protein through synthetic biology and industrial biotech.”
“Asia is at the heart of our Global Food Security Challenge. By 2030 about half of the world’s global population will reside in Asia, and despite being known as a global food sector, Asia is simply unable to produce enough to feed itself, relying extensively on imports. In Singapore, while diversifying our sources of food is important, it needs to include a greater ability to produce our own food, even in a land scarce country.”
