Singapore to host 27th C’wealth Agricultural Conference

Singapore beat Canada to host the 27th Commonwealth Agricultural Conference in 2016.

Announcing this on Thursday was the Kranji Countryside Association that made the bid at the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth.

This is the first time an Asian member of the Commonwealth has been chosen to organise the event.

The conference will bring over together 300 agriculturists, environmentalists and government agencies to discus food production and food safety.

The bid was won on Singapore’s research and development platform and geographical location.

An organising committee for the 2016 project has been formed and will be led by the former CEO of the Agri-food and Veterinary Authority, Dr Ngiam Tong Tau.
