The Third Vietnamese Agricultural Outlook Conference
24-25 March 2009, Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam
ILRI have been invited by project partners the Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development (IPSARD) to partake in the third Agricultural Outlook Conference to be held in late March 2009. ILRI, represented by Dr. Mohammad Jabbar, will present on the topic ‘World livestock production in 2008 and Outlook for 2009’. The paper and powerpoint presentation will offer a brief overview of world livestock production during the past ten years before offering forecasts of likely developments to the sector in 2009. Although ILRI will consider the global livestock trade generally, regional issues with potentially important ramifications here in Viet Nam will be highlighted. Further, ILRI will discuss some aspects of current livestock policy that may benefit from reappraisal in a changing global and regional livestock sector.
