Evert and Lucie were in Kuala Lumpur to attend the APSA (Asian Pacific Seed Association). It was the first time AIP attend this event. Even though we already are familiar with its European (ESA), Americain (ASTA) and global (ISF) versions.
It was a great opportunity to meet with existing partners and make new ones. Asia is a strong region in the seed business. We are glad to see we can help their actors. Last week was very inspiring. Did we miss you? We are looking forward to meet again next year in China (APSA 2020), Monterey CA (ASTA 2020) or in June in South Africa (ISF 2020).
Good to know 😀
Malaysia was a very nice place to stay, the people are very kind and the food is AMAZING and is not expensive. We spend quite some time in the supermarket being mesmerized by the diversity of fruits and vegetables.
What is APSA?
The Asia and Pacific Seed Association (APSA) was established in 1994, through the cooperation of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and DANIDA, with the aim of promoting quality seed production and marketing in the Asia and Pacific Region. Today, APSA is the largest regional seed association in the world. It has strong links with international organisations such as FAO, CGIAR institutions, ISF, ISTA, UPOV, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the World Trade Organization, among others. APSA members include national seed associations, government agencies, public and private seed companies, and associate members.
