Introduction

With the common objective of promoting sustainability, inclusivity, productivity and competitiveness in the agriculture sector, EuroCham Myanmar (EuroCham), the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) are collaborating in convening the Agrobusiness Forum 2019, focused on promoting good agricultural practices and responsible supply chain management among agrobusinesses operating in Myanmar.

Objectives

The objective of the Forum is to provide a platform for agrobusiness representatives and Myanmar policymakers to openly discuss challenges and opportunities in implementing good agricultural practices and due diligence in supply chains, including practices related to trade and finance, labour rights and decent work, land issues, technologies and food safety, in Myanmar’s agricultural sector. Initiatives and concrete action items will be discussed to support collaboration and knowledge sharing mechanisms.

Expected outcomes

Through this Forum, businesses will learn about the leading international standards and tools available to companies to implement good agricultural practices leading to enhanced sustainability, inclusivity, productivity and competitiveness. The Forum itself will promote sector collaboration, transparency and policy coherence by facilitating dialogue among agrobusiness stakeholders - including national and international enterprises, employers and workers - and policymakers in Myanmar.

The roundtables session will be an opportunity to develop recommendations and follow-through actions that will help businesses transfer international standards on sustainability and decent work into concrete business practices and measurable action.

Participants

Around 150-200 participants are expected to attend, including policymakers from the Government of Myanmar, business representatives active in Myanmar’s agriculture sector, employers and employee organisations, international and civil society organisations.
