GERMANY - The organisers of EuroTier 2008 have set up an Eastern European Conference to focus on Russia and Ukraine's Co-operative Venture in Animal Production.


At EuroTier's third eastern Europe conference, which takes place at the Convention Centre (CC) on 12 November, politicians and agribusiness experts will be addressing the future prospects and challenges for the animal production industry in Russia and Ukraine. Speaker presentations will cover the current operating environment, the potential for development as well as financing possibilities. Practical experiences of a German and Russian co-operative venture will be shared.

The East European conference takes place within EuroTier at the Congress Centre in Hall 3A from 10:00 to 13:00.

The DLG Committee International Partnership, the working group society of German animal breeders (ADT) and the working group committee of eastern agribusiness of German business (die Arbeitsgruppe Agrarwirtschaft des Ostausschusses der Deutschen Wirtschaft) are the conference organisers

The conference, which provides a platform for discussion to facilitate international co-operation is aimed at professionals in the animal production industry in both East and West Europe. Some 300 international attendees are expected, drawn from commercial business, science and academia.
