This event is part of the Agribusiness event series. The agriculture and food industry is a strong economic driver in Alberta and across Canada. Serving as Canada’s Minister of Agriculture and Agri-food for nearly eight years, Minister Gerry Ritz will provide insights into the Federal Government’s transformational agricultural agenda including a focus on trade, competitiveness, market freedom and transportation. Join us for a timely discussion on how producers, business and government can work together to maximize opportunities in a growing global marketplace. About the Agribusiness event series Agriculture remains a growing sector and a huge contributor to the Canadian economy. By 2020, Canada is forecast to be one of only six net food exporting nations, with the bulk of those exports coming from Alberta and Saskatchewan. Agriculture feeds us and employs many, but the sector has changed. As many Calgary-based companies have downstream involvement in the agribusiness sector, this event and policy series takes a look at understanding the impact, scope and future of agribusiness. It also is meant to generate discussion about issues and trends in the industry and recognize the economic impact of agriculture as a commercial enterprise, as well as the opportunities and challenges that come with it.
