Singapore wishes to build a more resilient food future by working towards ‘30 by 30’, whereby we build up our agri-food industry’s capability and capacity to sustainably produce 30% of our nutritional needs by 2030.

The Agritech forum examines the urban farming landscape and highlights how automation plays a role in it. The forum will discuss questions about how we are able to produce food locally, what are some of the challenges, how are they resolved, and if solutions and technology are the key to addressing these issues.
