CNH Industrial takes pride in demonstrating its commitment to the agricultural sector by proudly sponsoring the 2023 World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) General Assembly, to be held in Sun City, Rustenburg, South Africa, from 21 – 24 May.
Having won the bid to host the event, South Africa can be rightfully proud of the honour of hosting this prestigious international gathering. As one of two main sponsors, CNH Industrial looks forward to welcoming delegates from around the world.
“By facilitating meaningful dialogue and building valuable partnerships right here on home turf, CNH Industrial is confident that the high level of interaction will greatly benefit the entire agricultural community and the region as a whole. The meeting will provide valuable opportunities to discuss and share visions and ideas on opportunities and challenges that characterise agriculture on a local, regional, and global level” says Jacques Taylor – Managing Director of CNH Industrial Agriculture and Construction in Southern Africa.
The Annual General Assembly of the WFO is one of the most influential gatherings of farming leaders in the world. Farmers who are representing more than 80 national farmers’ organisations take part in WFO activities throughout the year, advocating on behalf of the UN and its agencies, its building capacity, and finding consensus on agricultural policies.
The WFO is a member-based association – gathering national farmers’ organisations and agricultural cooperatives from all over the world at this event. The objective is to create an opportunity for the adoption of policies and programmes that can improve the economic environment and livelihood of producers and rural communities – strengthening the contribution of agriculture in confronting the challenges that are facing farmers and the future of humankind.
The #WFOGA2023 will gather international delegates with high-level representatives of governments, private sector entities, NGOs, research centres, academia, international organisations, and financial institutions. It promises to be an agricultural event that moves policy horizons – both globally and in the southern African region.
This year’s WFO General Assembly will focus on the sequence between agriculture and nature – highlighting the critical role that farmers can play to address the global challenges of transitioning to resilient food systems and generate a sustainable and positive impact on the environment. The 2023 event will have the theme, “Investing in farmers’ solutions for resilient food systems with a positive impact on nature”.
“CNH Industrial looks forward to further demonstrate its resolve and positively contribute to the future of agriculture in southern Africa by engaging in important topics and policies on a global scale. We are committed to the protection and promotion of these rights, values, ideals, and needs of our farmers and their families in the primary produce sector” Taylor added.
A high-ranking international speaker from CNH Industrial will represent the company at the event, delivering an address on “Technology and its role in driving sustainable agricultural practices”. CNH Industrial will also participate in a panel discussion titled “Farmer-driven Innovation is key to unlock the potential of the agricultural sector in response to a global crisis”.
CNH Industrial will have the opportunity to showcase both Case IH and New Holland equipment ranges at the conference, and demonstrate its advanced agricultural technology solutions to delegates by hosting a dedicated technology field demo day. Here, delegates will have the opportunity to gain insight into precision agriculture technology and how this technology contributes towards sustainable agricultural practices. Delegates will be given the opportunity to observe world-renowned Case IH equipment out in the field via live demonstrations.
As a sponsor, CNH Industrial looks forward to gain valuable information and contribute towards developments in the agriculture sector. Utilising the knowledge gained from the conference, the organisation can inform its business strategy and add value to its local and global stakeholders.
