Agriculture is important even in a small city state like ours and this event is going to open up so many doors to mutual exploration and development of our industry. I’m extremely excited to be a part of it and look forward to meeting and sharing ideas with leaders from all over the Commonwealth and beyond.”

Taking agriculture to the consumer and expose them to the value-chains within the different agricultural sectors. The 2016 RASC conference theme is therefore relevant to our situation in the South Africa. The Conference is the ideal platform to network, learn from our peers and focus on solutions to get past the crossroad that Agriculture is at. To engage in all of the above in a beautiful environment like Singapore, is the ideal, and we can’t wait to be a part of it.”

This conference brings together agricultural societies from around the world and provides a unique forum for the exchange of ideas. For 142 years, the RNA has been a proud champion of promoting and showcasing the essential role agriculture plays in our everyday lives from the food we eat to the clothes we wear. There are increasing pressures on achieving agricultural sustainability such as urbanisation and population growth and this conference will examine these in detail.”
