Conference Theme Achieving Sustainable Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries through Science and Technology

Kagoshima is one of Japan's leading agriculture, forestry, and fisheries prefectures. Kagoshima boasts the nation's largest number of pigs, beef cattle, and sweet potatoes, as well as a large concentration of food processing plants that process a wide variety of foods such as shochu, black vinegar, and dried bonito flakes, and has developed an industrial base while effectively utilizing its blessed natural environment. In the future, the fusion of agriculture, forestry, and fisheries, which is Kagoshima Prefecture's greatest strength, with knowledge from different fields such as energy, healthcare, robotics, and IoT could create new value and a strong culture that will once again attract global attention from a region where the population has long been declining and the birthrate is aging. In this forum, researchers, venture companies, and business firms from within and outside of the prefecture will gather to discuss mechanisms that can be implemented only in Japan's leading prefecture of agriculture, forestry, and fisheries, in light of the coming changes of the times.
