Applications are open for the YSEALI Advancing Agribusiness Digital Marketing Regional Workshop 2023. To empower young leaders to use technology to drive agribusiness in the region, the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) will convene a five-day Advancing Agribusiness Digital Marketing Regional Workshop in Dili, Timor-Leste on February 27 – March 3, 2023.
The workshop will include:
Agriculture in Southeast Asia is a dynamic sector poised for growth, but the sector faces several important challenges. The UN recently declared that global food production needed to double from 2012 to 2050 to feed the planet, climate change is already affecting Southeast Asia, and supply chains continue to face disruptions. Furthermore, most farmers in the region still face economic insecurity, and the agricultural sector continues to be underfunded.
In many countries in Southeast Asia, young agribusiness entrepreneurs are at the forefront of addressing these challenges. Southeast Asia is already a leading agricultural exporter and producer (including 31% of global rice production). The region is home to 682 million people, with a young population with a median age of 30 years. Bain and Temasek estimate that there are $225 billion in green economic opportunities in the region for agri-food and forestry. Southeast Asia has potential paths to success with its young population and sustainable growth opportunities.
Technology is one force multiplier to enable young agribusiness entrepreneurs to develop local and regional market opportunities including by building and deploying digital marketing strategies and implementing innovative technologies.
