EU integration – impact on Serbia’s agriculture and agribusiness
Wednesday, May 16, Novi Sad Fair, Congress Centar, hall VI, 11h00-13h00
Agriculture is both an economically and culturally important activity in Serbia. Following Serbia's acceptance as a candidate for European Union membership, its agriculture and rural issues will receive major attention from the rest of the EU. At the Seminar researchers and representatives from government and agribusiness will attempt to define the main challenges EU membership presents for Serbia’s agriculture and how to respond to those challenges. A joint Serbian/Dutch study presents implications of EU membership for the structure and performance of Serbia’ agri-food chain and how the country can adjust in order to comply with EU rules and regulations. The researchers also explore the consequences of preparing for EU accession for Serbia's agricultural policies and its agri-food supply chain, as well as how Serbia can best address the new economic market forces it will have access to. Agribusiness’ representatives will give their view on what the sector would need to prepare for EU membership. Next to introductions there is ample room for questions from the audience and discussion.
The Seminar is organised by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Department for Agriculture.
It will take place at the Congress Centar of Novi Sad Fair, on Wednesday, May 16, hall VI from 11h00 to 13h00.
