This webinar discussed the role of public and private sectors in reinvigorating the agro-processing industry in Southeast Asia and highlighted the need for further collaboration between the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) sovereign and non-sovereign operations to help the industry compete globally and build resilience to future shocks. 

The webinar was organized by ADB's Southeast Asia Department (SERD). The SERD Policy Talk (SPOT) webinar series features conversations on new ideas and development beyond office walls. It aims to inspire people to explore issues outside their normal area of work and encourages active interaction and debate among the participants with their varied perspectives and approaches.
