Registration is now open for attending the 2013 Governor’s Conference on Agrcultural Trade to be held March 7 and 8, 2013, in Richmond.
The theme for this year is “Virginia and the Global Market”. Speakers include Virginia Tech President Charles Steger, Chinese Ambassador Zhang Yesui, New Zealand Ambassador Mike Moore and Russian Deputy Trade Representative Oleg Slepov, who will address what recent events and other worldwide geo‐political and economic developments mean for agricultural trade moving forward into the future. Governor Bob McDonnell will be the keynote speaker.
Along with policy analysis and discussion the agenda will also again feature real‐life presentations from individuals and companies involved in exporting their products to international destinations. And as a special added bonus to this years’ program, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services international trade representatives will be available for one‐on‐one discussions with those that may want to discuss a particular market or product line (see program agenda and registration below for more information).
