of Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) on Global/Local Fruit Markets
FFTC 2021 DFNet Workshop on “Global / Local GAP Certification to Enhance Market Opportunities - Challenges and Strategies” was successfully conducted on July 13, 2021. The online workshop was organized by FFTC, in partnership with Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute (TARI), Taichung District Agricultural Research and Extension Station, and Dragon Fruit Network (DFNet).
The workshop had around 300 plus online registrants. The participants came mainly from the Philippines, Taiwan, Malaysia, India, Vietnam and Indonesia, and a few from HK, Japan, Bangladesh, and Costa Rica. About 70% of those belong to the public sector while 30% are from the private sector.
The online workshop was mainstreamed live on two platforms— the Cisco Webex platform and the FFTC Facebook Pages
in two languages - English and Chinese. In two weeks, the live video stream on Facebook has reached 691 views in the English channel and 573 views in the Chinese channel.
This year, the DFNet workshop topics were expanded to cover other tropical fruits in addition to dragon fruit. Workshop speakers and panelists were invited experts coming from 7 countries (New Zealand, Japan, India, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, and Taiwan), representing the areas of farming, international trade, governments and academics coming.
