8:30 - 10:15am: Responsible Investment in the Mekong

Darryl Vhugen, FAO

Recently, FAO sponsored studies of investments in African agriculture by companies from China, India and South Africa. Based on desk research and interviews, the studies attempted to assess the extent to which selected investors from those countries and their governments have adopted best practices arising from the VGGT in implementing such investments. The presentation focuses on Chinese investments and possible lessons learned that can be applied to land-based investments in agriculture in the Mekong region.
