Hong-Kong – 15 : Small farmers speak out

Report on Proceedings

The National Federation of Agricultural Unions (FNSEA, France) and French agricultural professional organisations in conjunction with the AFDI (French Farmers for International Development – celebrating its 30th anniversary this year) organised the event "Hong Kong – 15 : Small farmers speak out". Partners also included FARM and the international forum Dakar Agricole.

The stakes of the upcoming agricultural trade talks conducted by the WTO were at the center of debates at this event, which brought 400 participants from North and South together in Paris.

Participants included agricultural professional organisations from the South (nearly 50) and numerous public decision-makers and private operators from Africa.
The active presence of significant players in agriculture in the South ensured that ensuing discussions – to which foreign partners and the media were particularly attentive – would be balanced, pertinent, and high-quality.
