Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed, is travelling to Germany today to attend the ninth Berlin Agriculture Ministers’ Conference. The conference takes place as part of the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture, an important annual gathering of agriculture ministers from around the world, held during Berlin Green Week. The theme of this year’s Global Forum is Agriculture and Water - Key to Feeding the World.
Teagasc and the National Rural Network (NRN) are jointly hosting a series of seminars to promote the value of rural Ireland and the services available. The seminar series, entitled ‘Expand Your Horizons 2017’, will take place from the end of January to March. It is hoped the seminars will foster increased information sharing in rural areas.
