FFTC 2020 Annual Report

Highlights of FFTC’s major accomplishments and activities for 2020, and a summary of the Center’s projects for 2021 are now available online at the FFTC website. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and international travel restrictions, four of the Center’s 11 projects for 2020 have been postponed. While face-to-face workshops and seminars took a backseat for the time being, the FFTC management has adapted the videoconference mode in the conduct of its activities, with two conferences done both onsite and online. For a broader reach, we also livestreamed most of our conferences for the year via Facebook. The 2020 Annual Report also features the Center’s regular program comprising the production of its publications and the continuous operation of various websites on Asian agriculture, plus other activities which FFTC embarked on last year.
