About the Event

Join the Canada-ASEAN Business Council, the US-ASEAN Business Council, and the EU-ASEAN Business Council for this Special Joint Session: The Russia-Ukraine War and Food Security in ASEAN on June 30th, 9:00 – 10:30 am (GMT+8).

Event Background

The ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine has created massive shocks in the global food system, revealing problems of import dependency and vulnerability of national food systems worldwide. This has major implications for countries in Southeast Asia, in terms of their ability to feed populations and maintain the inputs required for agricultural activities. Increased exports and support from countries such as Canada, the U.S., and countries in the EU could potentially respond to an acute food crisis in Southeast Asia, while long-term supply chain integration could protect against future shocks.

In this event, we will explore the implications of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on food security in Southeast Asia. We will examine potential challenges for ASEAN countries and the related geopolitical ramifications.  We will also assess the capacity of Canada, the U.S., and the EU to support Southeast Asia and ensure its short and long-term food security.
