"It is an honour to lead CropLife Asia at such a consequential time for our region and industry," said Gustavo Palerosi Carneiro, President of CropLife Asia. "The challenges we face in Asia are daunting. While our region remains home to the highest number of hungry and undernourished, farmers are facing increasing pressure from pests, weeds, disease and the impacts of climate change. The far-reaching effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have only exacerbated the strain on food production and distribution.

"Plant science has an important role to play in making our food supply chain more resilient, but it's only part of the solution. On behalf of CropLife Asia, we look forward to working with food and agriculture stakeholders across the region to meet these growing demands."

It advocate a safe, secure food supply, and its vision is food security enabled by innovative agriculture.
