The Outlook Conference, a key event in the 2020 calendar, will be devoted to the potential of the Russian agricultural sector in the context of global trends. The Conference will provide a multi-sectoral platform for discussing both medium-term market projections and new challenges arising within global food systems in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) and the preparation of UN Food Systems Summit 2021 convened by the UN Secretary-General António Guterres.

In recent years Russian agriculture has been actively integrating into the world economy. In this regard, there is growing interest inside the country towards supply and demand and trade-related trends, and price movements in global agricultural markets. The OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook presentation in Russia will help increase its practical value not just for academia and policy-makers, but for the Russian private sector too, considering especially its more active use of statistical and forecast data in developing strategies addressing global trends. The event will bring together a wide range of participants interested in current and medium-term trends in the industry: regulators and administrative authorities, business community, market analysts, research organizations, and business media.
