De La Salle University

ICoA is the international conference in the field of agro-industry that is held regularly and attended by academicians, researchers, and practitioners throughout the world. On 2019 the ICoA was held in Philippines with the theme “Sustainable Agro-Industry: A Key Driver to Achieving the SDGs”.  The conference is expected to be a venue for dissemination of recent agro-industry research that will help in driving achievement across the Sustainable Development Goals. It aims also to provide a setting where public and private sectors participate in legitimizing, engage in shaping and work towards achieving development solutions.

Manila, the capital and highly urbanized city of the Philippines, will be the venue of this year’s ICoA. The formal plenary talks and topical sessions will specifically be held in the country’s premier private tertiary institution and leading research University, De La Salle University.  The selection of this venue for ICoA  can provide an opportunity for both academicians and agro-industrial practitioners to share and discuss recent agro-industrial issues and initiate cooperation in the field of agro-industry.
