Agriculture is one of the core sectors in the Philippines that remains to have great potential. When managed efficiently, the sector is poised to reap substantial benefits for the country. The European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) remains steadfast as a steward of a thriving Philippine agricultural sector. It is in this context that ECCP is organizing the fourth run of its Sustainable Agriculture Forum (SAF) on 24 to 25 July 2019 at the Grand Ballroom, Marriott Hotel Manila with the theme "Towards a Sustainable and Responsible Agricultural Supply Chain."
The first day of the forum aims to conduct high-level discussions on major issues relating to the competitiveness, sustainability, and inclusiveness of the Philippine agriculture sector. It also aims to identify the gaps and opportunities through topical sessions to address and achieve the goals of the event.
ECCP, in partnership with the International Labor Organization (ILO), the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD), and the Employers Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP) will also organize a technical seminar meeting on the second day of the forum which will look at responsible business conduct, decent work, and related labor issues in the agribusiness sector.
