2016 will be an eventful year for the Hungarian agricultural sector. The past year was rich in unexpected changes, and this year brings possibilities and challenges never seen before. What promises does the new Rural Development Program hold? How do we prosper a market full of tenders? How can we apply successfully for the new Union funds? What solution can be found for the drastic effects of the Russian embargo? What effects will the technological explosion have on the agricultural sector? Can the new branch be set in motion by the new credit programs? How will the food industry, gardening and livestock breeding sectors utilize the new state- and Union granted billions?

This year starts with a multitude of unresolved questions, professional issues and challenges to be answered. The aim of our conference is to provide practical guidance and up-to-date information on the continuously changing market and regulatory environment for companies operating in the agricultural and food industry sectors. We will approach the major topics relating to the sector from a practical aspect in order to create an effective platform for public and informal discussion of the issues concerning the Hungarian agricultural sector, professional debate and the sharing of thoughts.
