Meet Agriculture Minister Counselor Phillip Schull and Ag Forum Planning Meeting

2:00 - 5:00 PM, Monday, January 19, 2015 - AmCham Conference Center

Join the Agriculture Forum in its first meeting of 2015 to meet with the new Agriculture Minister Counselor Phillip Schull, who will provide an overview of the US-China Agriculture cooperation, priorities and working plans of department's Foreign Agriculture Service in 2015. Following the discussion with Schull, the Agriculture Forum will discuss its goals, priorities and working plans for 2015.

The agenda of the planning meeting includes:

- Summarize the forum's 2014 achievements (activities, outreach)
- Discuss members' needs and desires
- Setting forum goals, priorities and working plans for 2015

The purpose of the Agriculture Forum is to establish a platform for members interested in agriculture to meet regularly to discuss industry issues, challenges, and opportunities. The forum also helps facilitate cooperative relationships with Chinese organizations on food security, food safety, and agriculture productivity through bilateral dialogues and educational activities. The Agriculture Forum regularly holds meetings among members to share and update information in the industry and pays close attention to issues such as labor, land and water. Recently members held a planning session and decided to hold a series of events to discuss farm management and relevant policies in China. A number of Chinese officials were invited to a series of policy debriefing events to discuss with the forum members about China food security strategies and policies.
