The APFIC Executive Com mittee at its Seventy-fifth session comprised Sri Lanka (Chair), Philippines (Vice-Chair), Indonesia and Myanmar (Members), India (former Chair) and the Secretary of the Commission (as an ex officio Member). The Executive Committee agreed that there were common objectives between the FAO/APFIC Regiol Initiative on Blue Growth and the work priorities identified by the Commission. It recommended that the Regiol Initiative on Blue Growth and APFIC’s related work should be brought to the attention o f the FAO Asia-Pacific Regiol Conference (APRC), through the inclusion of an APRC agenda item on the contribution of fish to nutrition and food security. The Executive Committee agreed that there was a need for monitoring in order to assess the benefits and risks of FADs and artificial reefs in the region and agreed with the development of an approach to assess the ture and extent of illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing in the APFIC region. The Executive Committee developed the agen da of the APFIC regiol consultative workshop “Documentation and dissemition of successful sustaible aquaculture intensification practices in Asia” and reviewed the planned activity “APFIC regiol consultative workshop on improving the contribution of culture-based fisheries and related fishery enhancements in inland waters to blue growth”, noting that this was a timely contribution to the dialogue on blue growth and its potential in inland waters. The Executive Committee noted the endorsed regiol guidelines and training courses developed by APFIC and emphasized the importance of engagement with regiol partners to ensure their promotion within the region and provide suggestions in that regard. The Executive Committee reviewed the budget and expenses of the Commission and recommended that core allocation be sustained and suggested cost reduction strategies and means of encouraging greater contributions of in-kind support to the work of the Commission. The Executive Committee discussed the preparations for the Sixth APFIC Regiol Consultation Forum Meeting (RCFM) and the Thirty-fourth Session of the Commission to be held in Sri Lanka in January/February 2016. The Executive Committee agreed that the Seventy-sixth Session of the Executive Committee would be convened in the Philippines in September 2016 subject to confirmation by the Philippines’ government.

    FAO's Strategic Framework, reviewed in 2016-17, provides direction for FAO's technical work and its Strategic Programmes (SPs) to effectively address the priorities in the region and ensure effective delivery of results at country level. The Reviewed Strategic Framework of FAO and its Medium Term Plan 2018-21 and Programme of Work and Budget 2018-19 were approved by the FAO Conference at its 40th Session in July 2017. The Conference appreciated the close alignment of FAO’s Strategic Objectives (SOs) with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As supported by the Regional Conference at its 33rd Session, during 2016-17 FAO in the Asia and the Pacific region focused its work on four regional initiatives (RIs): the Regional Initiative on the Zero Hunger Challenge; the Regional Rice Initiative; the Regional Initiative on Blue Growth; and the Regional Initiative on Developing Local Value Chains for Food Security and Nutrition in the Pacific Island Countries. Other programmes and priority areas of work included Food Safety and “One Health”; Making Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries More Productive and Sustainable in the Context of Change Climate; SDGs, Monitoring and Agricultural Statistics; Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment; and Migration.
