Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH

The Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a German International Cooperation Enterprise for Sustainable Development with worldwide operations.
Most of Southeast Asia’s economies are strongly dependent on the agricultural sector, with a considerablepotential regarding trade in agricultural products. Opportunities for poverty alleviation and rural development through diversified trade exist for a wide range of product groups, such as fresh and processed fruits and vegetables, rice, palm oil, spices, fish and seafood. These opportunities have to be realized in increasingly competitive markets with strong requirements in terms of safety and quality. While compliance with food safety regulations of importing countries has long been a general prerequisite for market access, producers and traders also need to adjust to changing consumer perceptions and higher demands for quality standards from both, leading supermarket chains and a growing middle class with bigger purchasing power. Participation in higher-priced market segments calls for voluntary, private standards to complement legal requirements set by governments and duly account for quality throughout the production process, including aspects of climate change, fair trade and social factors. Against this backdrop, innovative concepts for risk-based and self-assessments of the industry, are gaining in importance.
Within the framework of ASEAN-German Cooperation in the focal area of “Regional Economic Integration” (REI), a new project is currently being prepared titled “Standards in the Southeast Asian Food Trade”. As a precondition for the implementation start, the related proposal and legal documents are set to have passed the ASEAN internal appraisal process and expected to receive endorsement from the Committee of Representatives of ASEAN soon. The project will be carried out by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, with funding in the amount of 2.5 million EUR for 3 years.
In accordance with the targets set out in the ASEAN Economic Community Blueprint 2009-2015 concerning “enhanced intra- and extra- ASEAN trade and long-term competitiveness of ASEAN’s food, agriculture and forestry products/commodities”, the planned project intends to stimulate the adoption of internationally recognized best practices and standards in the production and distribution of fresh and processed fruit and vegetables. This will come hand in hand with a stronger engagement of the private sector, notably in the CLMV countries, in the implementation and international acceptance of ASEAN standards.
The overall objective of the project is to implement international or ASEAN-wide standards for good agricultural practice and specific food quality attributes (particularly for fresh and processed fruit and vegetables) in a credible manner. The support will focus on two intervention areas:
  1. Implementation of standards (through development partnerships with the private sector);
  2. Conformity assessment (through training and learning platforms for control bodies).
Project activities will be consulted and jointly implemented with the Expert Working Group on Good Agricultural Practices (EWG GAP) of ASEAN as well as the Agriculture Industries and Natural Resources Division (AINRD) of the ASEAN Secretariat. The Ministry of Agriculture of Indonesia will host the project office its premises in Jakarta.
