Third Senior Officials' Meeting (SOM3), Food Security Week
10 August – 03 September 2021
This is the third Senior Officials’ Meeting.
Senior Officials' Meetings (SOMs) submit proposals to ministers, and implement policies made at Ministerial Meetings. SOMs supervise and coordinate budget and working programmes of APEC fora to implement declarations and directives given by APEC leaders and ministers. SOMs are held in advance of and to prepare for Ministerial Meetings.
Food Security Week meetings focus on the availability of sufficient and affordable supplies of food needed for the region’s population to enjoy productive lives.
APEC members are working to foster the development and growth of the agricultural sector, increase food and agriculture trade, and promote the development and adoption of new technologies.
