|Description||This publication is the report of the AgriBusiness Forum 2007, which was jointly organized by the European Marketing Research Center (EMRC) and the
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) at the FAO headquarters in Rome on 3-5 June 2007.
The objective of the Agribusiness Forum 2007 was to promote Public-Private
Partnerships by offering EMRC’s international platform for the exchange of ideas for local and global agri-food chain players. By bringing people together, EMRC and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) aimed to encourage collaboration across continents between entrepreneurs and agribusinesses from Africa, Europe and the United States of America. The Forum also aimed to contribute to the discussion of how African economies can move from subsistence to commercial farming, and how integration can take place into fast growing value chains through innovative entrepreneurship. Also, The AgriBusiness Forum 2007 has stimulated creative reflections on what issues are important for the development of agriculture, in particular, for accelerating the pace of agribusiness development in developing countries.
