International summit on the eve of the 115th Verona Agricultural Exhibition.

Verona, 2 December 2021 – Fieragricola celebrates the first 60 years of the Common Agricultural Policy with an international summit scheduled in Verona (Palazzo della Gran Guardia) next
25 January
, on the eve of the 115th edition of the international exhibition dedicated to agriculture (26-29 January 2022).
An occasion, of course, to celebrate what was the first policy of aggregation of the united Europe, applied since 1962, but already desired by the Treaty of Rome in 1957 which, in establishing the
European Economic Community (EEC) between Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, simultaneously established in Article 39 the aims of the Common Agricultural Policy
(CAP), now expanded with the reform that will come into force in January 2023 and which provide for ensuring a fair income to farmers; increase competitiveness; rebalance the distribution of
power in the food supply chain; act to combat climate change; protect the environment; safeguard the landscape and biodiversity; support generational change; develop dynamic rural areas; and
protect food quality and health.
The CAP was Europe’s first real glue, when the main priority at the time was still to guarantee access to food for the population,- said Veronafiere President Maurizio Danese. –
Fieragricola has witnessed its evolution together with farmers and in January, together with institutions and the farming world, we wish to launch a debate on the future of agriculture itself,
promoting a vision to 2050 and confirming the centrality of the exhibition and the role of VeronaFiere for this sector that represents European policy better than any other. We are also
aware that today some needs have changed, the world population is growing, agriculture is increasingly greener and food safety remains a fundamental point on which to focus with the help of
increasingly high-performance technological innovations. At the same time, we have seen that the spirit of the CAP and the attention it shows towards agriculture and rurality has remained
that of the constituent fathers of post-war Europe and it is precisely for this reason that we want to launch a look at the agriculture of the future from Fieragricola.
Zero emission: 2050 horizon. In the morning session (from 10 am), Fieragricola will focus on the CAP policy and the future of agriculture, with institutional greetings and a
round table dedicated precisely to “Zero emission agriculture: 2050 horizon”. The aim is to outline together a concrete vision of growth, thanks to a debate between institutions, farmers and big
players in the mechanics, zootechnics, agro-energy and chemical sectors.
The afternoon session (from 2.30 pm) will focus on innovation.
Research and development will be increasingly fundamental to guarantee food security and food safety, protect the environment and preserve the planet’s resources. What will be the new frontiers of
agricultural production? How can we guarantee greater productivity, healthy production, savings in water resources and soil consumption, and the development of energy from renewable agricultural
sources? What future for urban farming and vertical farming between now and 2050? Producer companies, the world of research and young European farmers will discuss.
CAP and Green Deal. The future of agriculture will be increasingly green. This is the trajectory indicated by the reform of the CAP and the inspiring principles of the New
Green Deal
, the great challenge launched by the European Commission for a more sustainable, more organic, more environmentally friendly Europe. The goal is “Zero Emission”, set for 2050.
But how? What strategies should be adopted to combine higher productivity, reduced waste and lower emissions? What role should be played by agriculture, farming businesses and supply chains?
Representatives of agricultural representatives will discuss these issues in order to identify strategies and policies for the agriculture of the future.
