Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue
The Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue is an exchange program for German and American farmers. The program provides platforms for professional dialogue and allows farmers to better understand international markets, exchange practical ideas, and form international contacts and friendships.
Despite living in different countries and farming under different conditions and regulatory frameworks, farmers in America and Germany face surprisingly similar challenges, including public acceptance, regulations, farm succession and changing commodity prices.
April 2019: Study Trip to Germany on Direct Marketing
- From April 8 to 12, 2019, GACC Midwest will travel through Bavaria with up to 20 selected representatives of American agriculture. The focus will be on direct marketing of agricultural products. This is an opportunity for farmers all over the world to increase the value of their own products and to protect themselves against fluctuations in international markets.
How to Get Involved
Are you looking to position your organization more internationally? Have you ever wondered about the reasons behind European trade regulations on agricultural products? Do you want to know how farmers work and live in Germany?
The Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue is a convenient and affordable way to supply your organization and farmers with first-hand market intelligence. We will co-host a round table at your location and take care of getting the right foreign farming professionals there to get the transatlantic exchange started.
Subsequently, you get the chance to take your members on a week-long study trip abroad for hands-on knowledge exchange with local farmers, regulators and agribusinesses.
For details, please see our sponsorship agreement.
Please contact us to discuss topics for the exchange you are particularly interested in and the time frame you’d like to become involved in.
“The Transatlantic Dialogue offered unprecedented mutual access to German and American agriculture at the highest levels. The conversations, understandings and relationships we developed over several days are critically important in today’s global agricultural market.”
