The final program of the two-day international symposium was the closing remark which was delivered by Dr. Kuo-Ching Lin, Director of FFTC. He congratulated everyone for making great effort to make the International Symposium successful. He also thanked the co-organizers and speakers from the Asia-Pacific region for their contributions to the Symposium, and wished the friendship would last and everyone would continue to keep in touch. The topics of the Symposium include Smart Agriculture, Environmentally Friendly, Consumer Friendly and Food Production, which are explored from different angles to exchange ideas and learn from each other. Each country has different points for Smart Agriculture due to geography environment and development stage differences. Southeast Asia focuses on Precision Agriculture, while Northeast Asia focuses on GAP and overall social and ecological sustainability. Although GAP is the direction of future development, regardless of whether organic or GAP needs to be promoted for a long time, only by changes in the code of conduct can it make significant and more comprehensive progress. Whether it is fit with GAP or organic food production regulation, governments should always ensure food safety for people. The advancement of technology research and development and production methods is mainly driven by demand, that is, demand-oriented research and development, consumers play an important role in this process, and the implementation of food and agriculture education can drive the establishment of a sustainable food system. Smart agriculture does not only include the development and application of technology, but also smart decision making, smart policy, smart use and smart consumers.
