The 4C Association invites its members to this important event which will bring together more than 350 leaders from business, government, agricultural associations, financial services, NGOs, civil society and consumer groups.
It provides a fantastic networking opportunity to meet international sustainability leaders and business peers, and to learn the very latest in responsible and sustainable business strategy and practice.

Organised in partnership between Global Initiatives, VCCI, MARD and WWF-Vietnam, the forum will convene global leaders to discuss improving the productivity and sustainability of key agricultural commodities, namely aquaculture; dairy; coffee; maize; rice and tea.

Under the theme ‘ASEAN Beyond 2015: Collaboration for Equitable Growth’, working groups at RBF Hanoi will produce actionable recommendations for successful public-private partnerships, increasing the global supply of sustainably produced commodities, while improving farmer livelihoods and reducing environmental impacts. Highlights will include a dialogue with ASEAN government Ministers on sustainable agriculture.

The Secretary-General of ASEAN Le Luong Minh will open the forum and speakers include Cao Duc Phat, Minister of Agriculture & Rural Development, Vietnam; Lory Tan, CEO, WWF-Philippines; Chris Ninnes, CEO, Aquaculture Stewardship Council; Darrel Webber, Secretary General, RSPO; Roberio Silva, Director General, International Coffee Organisation; Todd Freeland, Director General, Asian Development Bank; Ministers from Philippines, Indonesia and Cambodia, whilst CEOs from Unilever and other global companies will attend the event.
