EU Agricultural Outlook conference
The EU Agricultural Outlook conference has now become the key annual gathering of European stakeholders willing to engage and discuss the future of agriculture in Europe and the challenges which lie ahead.
The fourth edition of the conference will be opened by Agriculture and Rural Development Commissioner, Phil Hogan.
Discussion on day one will involve high level panellists and will focus on digitisation and innovation in the farming sector but also on Africa.
The second day will focus on the outlook for EU agricultural markets (crops, biofuels, meat and dairy), presenting the latest report produced with the support of the Joint Research Centre (JRC). The outlook and the changes to be expected will be debated by a panel of experts.
Participants will include EU institutions, governments and international organisations, those involved in the food supply chain, market experts, academics, think tanks and civil society.
Mr Arnold Hatch, rapporteur of the opinion on "Supporting young European farmers" will be participating.
