“Agriculture needs to be seen as more than just the means of feeding an ever growing world population,”
This intimate discussion will strive to generate action plans to form effective partnerships between the participants, while attracting greater global attention to agriculture. Participants include heads-of-state and other government officials, corporate CEOs, leaders of non-governmental organizations and renowned academics.
“This is our most actionable meeting to-date,” said Bolger. “The issue of our global agricultural impact over this next year will mold our world, and lives, for years to come. We hope to leave this meeting with plans in place to create strategic alliances for better food supply, sustainable practices for future growth and a new archetype for consumer requirements and food demand.”
The Asia Roundtable will serve as the final meeting leading up to the World Agricultural Forum’s Sixth Biennial World Congress scheduled for May 18-20, 2009 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.

The World Agricultural Forum (WAF) is at the forefront of the evolving agricultural industry and it serves as a catalyst for innovation and positive changes in agribusiness. On a global stage, the WAF produces one of the largest biennial gatherings of leaders concerned about the world’s growing population and the respective shortages of food, fuel and fiber in both developed and developing nations.
The WAF also conducts regional Congresses that, through the use of reliable and timely information, address emerging trends and key industry issues such as sustainable agriculture, fair trade policies and biotechnology. Its focus is to identify solutions to current problems facing poorer nations, particularly in overcoming hunger and poverty.
