The Center has marked its half-century of existence last year. Originally, there was supposed to be a one-day celebration last April 22, 2020 coinciding with an agricultural symposium on the same day. However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the celebration and symposium were postponed to October 21, 2020. And because of the recent developments regarding the continuous spread of the virus and the travel restrictions in almost all countries of the region, the celebration of FFTC’s 50th anniversary and symposium was again postponed.
This time, the FFTC management has decided that regardless of whether the travel restrictions will be lifted or not in Taiwan and other Asian countries, FFTC will still push through with its 50th Anniversary Celebration on October 6, 2021. This will be done both onsite (in Taipei) and online coinciding with a symposium that will tackle among other things, how the COVID-19 continues to affect Asian agriculture and the strategies to overcome the challenges and build a sustainable and resilient agri-food system in the region.
We will keep you posted on further developments of this event. For any questions or inquiries regarding the above mentioned matter, kindly send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
