The 2021 EU Agricultural Outlook conference will take place online on 9 and 10 December. Now in its eighth edition, the theme of this year’s event is ‘Fit for 2030 – resilient EU agri-food systems and rural areas’.
The conference will examine what we can expect global agricultural markets to look like in 2030, in light of the political and market uncertainty currently facing the agricultural sector. Will food systems be more resilient following the Covid-19 pandemic? Will the new common agricultural policy effectively encourage farmers across Europe to embrace the green transition?
Senior representatives from EU bodies and international organisations, farmers, agricultural experts and rural actors will come together to discuss these questions, as well as the broader medium-term outlook for agricultural markets, income and environment.
The EU Agricultural Outlook conference has become a successful annual event for broad exchanges among stakeholders on market prospects in agriculture, including the political framework and uncertainties surrounding market developments in the next 10 years. Each year the conference coincides with the release of the annual report on market prospects.
