Prime Minister of Viet Nam and FAO Director-General open Regional Conference for Asia and the Pacific

DG presents global challenges and regional priorities; we can gain ground rapidly against hunger, he adds.

In a statement to the Regional Conference, Director-General José Graziano da Silva presented global and regional challenges related to food security and sustainable agriculture and said that FAO needed to better adapt itself to a changing global environment to deliver on its founders’ vision of a world free from want. 

“I am confident that we can gain ground rapidly in the fight against hunger”, said Graziano da Silva, adding that FAO put in place this year an integrated approach to combat hunger, linking emergency with development, scaling up initiatives that are giving results, working closely with partners and acting under local leadership.
