After decades of relative stability, international food prices escalated in 2007 before dropping and then rising again, most recently in July 2012.

Today, Asia NewsFlash is pleased to have Mr Hiroyuki Konuma, assistant director-general and FAO regional representative for Asia and the Pacific on the show. We will be asking him about the role and impact of market speculation on food prices.
