[WEBCAST] Disruptive Asia | Tech Innovations for a Food Secure AsiaVIEW EVENT DETAILS
As COVID-19 continues to cause economic disruptions worldwide, how can we apply new technologies and innovations to our food production systems and supply chains to help us avoid a pandemic-related food crisis?
The coronavirus is already affecting the entire global food system and has the potential to unleash a food security crisis that will hit those living below the poverty line the hardest. With Asia home to 2/3 of the world’s hungry, the need for investment in food and nutrition security in the region has never been more pressing. Join venture capitalist and Asia Society Northern California Center Board Director Jaleh Daie, in-conversation with the Director of Beanstalk AgTech in Asia, Rob Hulme, and Co-Founder of XAG – one of the world’s largest agricultural technology companies – Justin Gong, as they explore opportunities for the industry in circumnavigating disrupted food supply systems and opening new and life-saving avenues for safe, reliable, and affordable food supplies.
This discussion will be the second in a series exploring the Sustainability Edition of Asia Society Australia’s Disruptive Asia project, a major thought-leadership initiative that looks at how Asia’s rise is impacting Australia’s foreign policy, economy and society and how Australia should respond. In 2020, we ask if Asia’s rise is sustainable – environmentally, economically and socially?
Date: Thursday 25 June 2020
Time: 11 - 11:45 a.m. AEST
This event is open to the public and will be cast through YouTube LIVE. Registration is essential.

About our Speakers
Disruptive Asia is a thought-leadership project by Asia Society Australia launched in 2017. It presents – through long-form essays – new perspectives and policy recommendations on how Asia’s rise is impacting Australia’s foreign policy, economy and society and how Australia should respond. Disruptive Asia deliberately looks at both external aspects of Australia’s relationship with Asia (foreign policy, business connectivity, international education) and their domestic implications and manifestations (community relations, leadership diversity, education settings and capabilities).
Asia Society Australia acknowledges the support of the Victorian Government.
