We would like to invite you to this important event, which will convene more than 350 global leaders to discuss improving the productivity and sustainability of key agricultural commodities, namely aquaculture, dairy, coffee, maize, rice and tea.

Under the theme ‘ASEAN Beyond 2015: Collaboration for Equitable Growth’, working groups at RBF Hanoi will produce actionable recommendations for successful public-private partnerships, increasing the global supply of sustainably produced commodities, while improving farmer livelihoods and reducing environmental impacts.

The Secretary-General of ASEAN Le Luong Minh will open the forum and speakers include Cao Duc Phat, Minister of Agriculture & Rural Development, Vietnam; Lory Tan, CEO, WWF Philippines; Chris Ninnes, CEO, Aquaculture Stewardship Council; Darrel Webber, Secretary General, RSPO; Roberio Silva, Director General, International Coffee Organisation; Todd Freeland, Director General, Asian Development Bank; Ministers from Philippines, Indonesia and Cambodia, whilst CEOs from Unilever and other global companies will attend the event.

This provides an unrivalled networking opportunity to meet international sustainability leaders from business, government, agricultural associations, financial services, NGOs, civil society and consumer groups, and to learn the very latest in responsible and sustainable business strategy and practice.
