Abstract

Adequate, well maintained transportation infrastructure is a critical element of the Pacific food system in addressing challenges of rapid urbanization. Policymakers must invest either in streamlining domestic supply chains and/or in facilitating food imports through market opening measures. Economic incentives, competitive transportation and logistic services, and policy reforms, both within the borders of individual economies as well as across the Asia-Pacific region, are also necessary. Important progress is being made in developing and expanding transportation infrastructure to better link food-producing areas with fast growing urban centers. Creating modern infrastructure, improving related services and reforming policies will help build a more seamless Asia-Pacific food system.
