TOKYO, May 29 (Itar-Tass) — Japan intends to take an active part in the ministerial meeting on food security of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) member states due in Kazan on May 30-31, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Michihiko Kano announced at a press conference on Tuesday.
“We intend to give special attention to increasing food production in accordance with the Earth’s population growth,” he said. The minister said Tokyo would also like to discuss the issue of restrictions on the export of agricultural products.
The first APEC food security meeting held in October 2010 in the Japanese city of Niigata.
According to the estimates of UN experts, there are currently about 925 million undernourished people in the world, of whom nearly two-thirds live in the Asia-Pacific region. It is assumed that by 2050 the world population will reach 9 billion people, and demand for food will increase by 70-100 percent from the current level.
