Singapore jumps from 16th to fifth on Global Food Security Index

SINGAPORE - Singapore has jumped to fifth place in a world ranking of countries' food security, based on the availability, affordability, and quality and safety of food, National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan highlighted in a blog post on Tuesday. This is an improvement on Singapore's previous rank of 16th in the Economist Intelligence Unit's annual Global Food Security Index (GFSI), which covers 109 countries. Mr Khaw said: "Moving up 11 notches on the GFSI for a tiny city state without much agricultural land is no mean feat." Though Singapore's food security challenges are especially acute as the country is highly reliant on food imports, challenges can be addressed with sound policies and practical strategies, he said.
