Proceedings of International Seminar on Enhancing Export Competitiveness of Asian Fruits (Enhancing Export Competitiveness of Asian Fruits)


The Seminar shared the latest postharvest technology among the ESCAP member countries.It identified the best practices in fruit supply chain management and adaptation of the postharvest technology suitable to the conditions in the Asian-Pacific region. Adoption and application of the most appropriate and efficient food (inter alia, fruits and fresh vegetables) chain management would lead to increased food production both in terms of quantity and quality and increase the potential for exports of these horticultural produce from the region. The resultant higher income and employment of the rural population will contribute to rural poverty reduction, one of the major goals of the MDGs of the United Nations (UN).
