The FFTC’s Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is composed of 11 leading agricultural scientists/experts in the ASPAC region. In the FFTC-TAC meeting, these experts perform the following roles during the meeting, which is held once every two years: 1) review and provide advice on FFTC’s policy, program, and themes in the formulation, implementation and evaluation of FFTC’s working programs and activities; 2) deliberate on the priorities of agricultural needs and requirements of countries in the region; and 3) recommend the suitable directions and strategies to improve the performance and effectiveness of the Center’s operation. The FFTC 2019-2020 strategic action plan was approved in 2018, and it served as the scheme for FFTC’s annual activities in 2019 and 2020. It was suggested, in the 24th TAC meeting, that the strategic action plan should be revised and made into a 4-year rolling plan to fit with the dynamic technology movements. The themes of the strategic action plan will serve as a basis for charting the Center’s four-year annual activities. The 24th TAC meeting was held on July 23 to 26. The 25th TAC meeting is going is scheduled on July 21, 2020.
