VdA supported the Conference "Agriculture, which opportunities and challenges?", promoted by Santander, under the motto "thinking about the future of agriculture", debating relevant topics in this sector such as PEPAC (Strategic Plan for the Common Agricultural Policy), the importance of water in agriculture and environmental, social and governance sustainability (ESG).

Assunção Cristas and Catarina Pinto Correia participated as guest speakers at this event in which the great challenges for this sector were addressed, such as the growth of the world population or climate change.

"How to increase competitiveness, combining productivity and innovation, increasingly seeking an efficient management of resources and territory, were some of the paths explored for a more competitive and sustainable national agriculture."

The conference "Agriculture, which opportunities and challenges?" was held on 23 March at the Santander Auditorium in Lisbon.
