Sustainable Food Strategy
In the short term, we need to ensure that food supplies are sufficient and food access for the people, especially low-income people whose incomes have been severely affected by the pandemic.
With the continued increase in food prices around the world, the government needs to prepare short, medium- and long-term measures in order to ensure people\'s access to food.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) reported on June 3 that the Food Price Index (PPI) for May had increased to 127.1, up 4.8 percent increase from April and 39.7 percent from May 2020. Meanwhile, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates that food prices at the consumer level will increase year-on-year by 25 percent.
