This morning the Export Exchange 2010 program got started in earnest with opening remarks from Tom Dorr, USGC President/CEO. He says we have nearly 500 attendees from 33 countries. The proceedings will be translated into 7 languages.
Tom says that the opportunity to trade across borders helps to improve lives. That opportunity needs to be done in a transparent way to ensure food security. This Export Exchange is a forum to show that that food security is possible due to the use of new technologies and trade as a means to provide proper nutrition and safe food and economic opportunity for all.
