This year’s summit, held at the SMX Convention center in Pasay City, Manila, is themed “Champions and Emerging Icons of Inclusive Business, Technology and Innovation in Agriculture” and looks to inspire and empower stakeholders in the industry by recognizing those who have contributed to the advancement of agribusiness.

During the summit, panelists from the Philippines and other ASEAN countries are expected to share their own experiences and strategies that will encourage policy adjustment and system transformation for agribusinesses.

There will be five forums: (1) 3Ms Model as Championed in the Agriculture Industry, (2) Technology and Innovation as Game-changers in Agriculture, (3) Shaping the Future of Food Security and Agriculture, (4) Inclusive Finance for Agribusiness, and (5) Platforms and Opportunities in Growing Agriculture Market Access.

The summit will also bring together a roster of over 150 mentors, experts and practitioners to help inspire and empower agripreneurs who will provide on-site mentoring simultaneously with the summit.
