FFTC publications and website on Asian agriculture

Publications

FFTC has both chinese and english  versions of its own website. The FFTC agricultural policy platform also has another website. For its publications, except for the annual report, all were published electronically this year. This strategy is more economical, practical and environmentally friendly. Following are the Center’s completed list of publication and e-publications:

•    FFTC Annual Report 2016 
•    FFTC-AP Brochure (revised and reprinted)
•    10 extension bulletins and 5 technical bulletins
•    Newsletter 195 (January-March)
•    Newsletter 196 (April-June)
•    Newsletter 197 (July-October)
•    Newsletter 198 (November-December)

Website use

The staff in charge of the FFTC website uploaded the pertinent information regarding the Center’s workshop activities. This includes all papers and country reports, plus photos and videos. The AP project, which has its own link from the main FFTC website http://ap.fftc.agnet.org,   has helped a lot in generating more visitor hits as it has also uploaded more articles this year.

The Center also utilized the social media through its Facebook page, uploading more posts and photos of the Center’s activities.  From 1,772 likes, the FFTC Facebook page has now generated close to 2,000 likes.
