ABOUT FRA ARENA 2016
Last five years European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and Infoarena established platform, FRA ARENA Conference and business community network, for development and investments in Agribusiness, Retail and FMCG sector in SouthEast Europe on sustainable level. The Conference was dedicated to relationships in food sector, consumer goods and trade relations across the region.
During last five years a lot of decision makers from private and public sector, leading companies, investors and other important stakeholders change their business, views, visions, values and experience, a lot of M&A activities change the environments in the region and made it more competitive not any more on regional level but also on European and global level.
Our mission for next five years is to connect key players from the SouthEast and Central Europe with international investors, retailers, food producers, regulatory authorities and other relevant stakeholders and connect them with other relevant players in Europe, Asia, Africa and the rest of The Globe.
The global food system today is beset by serious challenges and risks: production and prices have become more volatile; hunger and poverty levels remain high, particularly among farming communities; and unsustainable practices exacerbate environmental challenges.
By 2050, the world’s population will have risen to 9 billion. Feeding this population will require substantial changes to ensure the production, distribution and consumption of sufficient nutritious and sustainably produced food.
World needs sustainably agriculture and all supply chain and it must simultaneously deliver food security, environmental sustainability and economic opportunity. Achieving global goals and trends requires a transformation of the agriculture sector, leveraging market-based approaches through a coordinated effort by all stakeholders, including farmers, government, civil society and the private sector. The key success factors of agriculture-sector transformation at the national level include setting the right direction through effective leadership, strategy and investment models, and scaling the transformation through finance, infrastructure, institutions and monitoring. One of most important part for all development of all industry, but also for sustainable development of all society are innovations. To achieve all of this, very important is global collaboration, communication and global business perspective. We hope that FRA Arena will give all of this to you, new business and investments opportunities, views, values, trends and powerful business and investment network.
