Highlights of FFTC’s major accomplishments and activities for 2021, and a summary of the Center’s projects for 2022 are now available online at the FFTC website. As the COVID-19 pandemic continued to disrupt lives, travels, businesses and supply chains in 2021, the FFTC management adjusted its work activities to cope with the challenging times. It switched all its activities to online mode. The Center held 11 online workshops, the greatest number of workshops in the Center’s history. It was also the year when it conducted its 50th Anniversary and Symposium and implemented the network projects on “FFTC Agricultural Policy Platform,” “Enhancing International Collaboration on Tropical Fruit Value Chain for Global Markets,” etc. Read all about it and so much more in the online version of FFTC’s 2021 Annual Report.
