The workshop brought together food safety regulatory and private sector officials from twenty APEC economies to share information on different approaches to meet key food safety challenges affecting food and agriculture trade in the Asia Pacific region. The discussion covered both technical and more general topics related to food safety, from addressing specific pathogens in foods to examining the roles of public and private sector stakeholders in improving food safety.
The objectives of this workshop were:
The workshop was a clear success in terms of information shared among influential public and private sector officials and in terms of commitments from both private and public sector officials to strive to use science-based approaches to facilitate trade in safe foods. The workshop also identified a critical need to share information regarding approaches to risk management and communication. Other stakeholders, including consumers, must be made aware of the value of science-based risk analysis to food safety and the availability of foods from around the world.
