Sustainable Production of food for a healthier Europe. Plovdiv, Bulgaria, 14 June 2018.
Building on the success of the inaugural 2017 edition, POLITICO’s Agriculture and Food Summit 2018 will return to Paris on November 27, 2018 to convene some of the world’s most impactful agriculture and food leaders. On the menu, a day of dynamic programming, serving a mix of panel discussions, keynotes, and breakout sessions moderated by POLITICO’s top agriculture and food policy journalists. We’ll discuss the most pressing issues ranging from farm economics to food trade, and whether or not Europe’s agri-food systems can stand on their own two feet.
Benefitting from an EU-China project on capacity building for young professional famers and agricultural professionals, a group of 12 young farmers from China came to Europe. Visiting Belgium, the United Kingdom and Estonia between 15 and 28 April 2018, the Chinese farmers and agricultural professionals had the chance to learn more about European agriculture.
