Pacific Food Outlook, 2000-2001 - The role of new technologies

A fundamental challenge facing the Pacific region will be to raise food system productivity at a pace that matches population growth and rising affluence.

This edition of the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (PECC) Pacific Food Outlook (PFO) provides a comprehensive assessment of the region's food system, providing an economy-by-economy assessment of the use of new food system technologies, including the use of biotech crops and information technology. It concludes that the key to success in meeting this challenge will be the skill and vision with which the Pacific economies are able to implement new technologies in the interests of producers and consumers alike.

This November 2000 publication is the fourth in a series of annual reports on the agricultural outlook of the Pacific Region. It was prepared by PECC Food and Agriculture Forum with the support of Farm Foundation. Click  here to view a copy online. A press release from the PEEC about the PFO is available  here.
