The Brussels Development Briefing n.46 on the subject of “Agribusiness development in Small Island Developing States (SIDS): the potential of tourism-related markets” will be held at the ACP Secretariat in Brussels from 09:00 until 13:00 on 21 September 2016. It is organised by CTA in collaboration with the European Commission / DEVCO, Concord and the ACP Secretariat.
The Briefing will promote exchange of views and experiences around the lessons learnt from linking agribusinesses to the tourism markets in small island economies and will pay particular attention to the key role of chefs as drivers of change for the development of food tourism. The event will also discuss the enabling policy environment and opportunities for agritourism development. This Briefing builds upon work accomplished by the organisers in collaboration with other partners across ACP small island economies in support of agritourism and agribusiness development, the most recent being the 2nd Pacific Agribusiness Forum.
