The Government this week gave approval to hold two international conferences in the field of agriculture. 

The events have been organised in collaboration with the Asian Productivity Organization, Asia-Africa Rural Development Organization and Centre for Integrated Rural Development for Asia-Pacific.

The ministry will first hold a workshop on the management of disaster risk in agriculture and adapting to climate change in September followed by an international summit on strengthening food safety standards in October.

The proposal by Agriculture Minister Duminda Dissanayake to hold these summits in Sri Lanka was approved by the Cabinet of Ministers this week.
