Agriculture ministers of 65 nations was assembled on 16th January 2016 for the 8th Berlin Agriculture Ministers' Summit during the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA).

The Norwegian Minister of agriculture and Food, Jon George Dale underlined in his Speech;

– The agricultural sector face the challenge of ensuring safe and healthy food for a growing population, in particular a growing urban population.

As I see it, this trend only underlines the importance of ensuring increased food production.  We must produce more food while making sustainably use of natural resources.

As minister of Agriculture and Food, I am determined to provide the incentives for a profitable and vital agricultural sector. I am particularly concerned that young people must find the agricultural sector to be an attractive career path.
