Country Committee

ILSI SEA Region is a regional entity that covers the 10 countries of ASEAN (Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam), Australia and New Zealand. Our Regional Office is based in Singapore; and we operate a Country Office (ILSI SEAR Australasia) based in Melbourne, that covers Australia and New Zealand. We oversee 5 Country Committees, which are located in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

Our Country Office and Country Committees are aligned with, and implement our scientific priorities and strategies in the countries in which they operate. At the same time, they are able to identify and address issues related to nutrition, food safety and sustainability that are of interest and relevance to our members, partners and stakeholders at the country-level.
