Event overview

Join CEDA as we provide an international perspective on the opportunities and challenges this sector faces and how the rest of the world see our agriculture potential.  CEDA welcomes two international agriculture thought-leaders, joining with Professor Kym Anderson AC and Catherine Sayer, Food SA CEO to provide rare insights into the current trends in global and regional trade and investment.

The event, supported by the European Union Centre for Global Affairs at the University of Adelaide, will provide a rare understanding from both the US and Europe on all matters relating to agriculture trade and investment.

As a State we have long recognised this great agriculture opportunity and it is not by change that the Premium Food and Wine produced in our Clean Environment and exported to the world is one of the State's Economic Priorities - a priority which aims to secure South Australia's position as a producer of premium food and wine from our clean water, air and soil.  Join CEDA as we provide an international perspective on the opportunities and challenges this sector faces and how the rest of the world sees our agriculture potential.
