“Abac and Apec is now in a position to make recommendations to leaders to ensure efficiencies in food and fisheries production and management to increase productivity through the application of technology and innovation.
“Use resources wisely and to management resources in a sustainable way and to promote investment in the agriculture and fisheries areas and to remove barriers in investments.”
Sir Charles said the outcomes were important to all members of Apec.
