This dialogue, conducted in partnership with the Responsible Business Forum (RBF), will address how various stakeholders can collaborate, to invest in solutions to improve health and nutrition, particularly in children through an open dialogue on the existing challenges in multi-stakeholder partnerships that might hinder with the public sector, as well as other stakeholders from achieving a common goal that promotes a healthier lifestyle in Asia.
