The International Federation of Agricultural Journalists Congress not only provides for great networking with colleagues from all over the world but is also an opportunity to learn about agriculture in a new country.
This year we’re in Argentina and during this afternoon’s opening program we heard from several people who talked about some of the issues facing not only farmers but agricultural journalists as well. Introducing some of our speakers was Cristian Mira who edits the agricultural supplement to the La Nación newspaper.
I visited with Cristian about this first Latin American Seminar which brought in attendees from the IFAJ Congress and other area journalists. The idea is to learn from the information and ideas presented. I think you’ll find my conversation with Christian interesting.
