One of the event organizers, María Mosquera, said the Congress was a lot of hard work but well worth the effort. “We had almost 200 people registering from 30 countries,” she said. “The most exciting part is seeing when you plan something and you dream about it and suddenly you see it comes true.”

The Congress saw the founding of a new Latin American agricultural journalist network with 15 countries in the region signing on to share knowledge and expertise between them. Interview with IFAJ 2013 organizer María Mosquera
