The Alliance at the 8th Day of Foreign Trade of the Agricultural and Food Industry in Berlin

On June 14, 2018, the 8th Day of Foreign Trade of the Agricultural and Food Industry took place at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in Berlin. Around 300 participants from the private and public sectors seized the opportunity for joint dialogue and discussed current issues in foreign business in six topic- and country-specific forums. The event, organized jointly by the Federation of German Food and Drink Industries (BVE), the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture and the Federal Foreign Office, is the industry’s most important conference.

Mattia Wegmann, Program Director of the German Alliance for Trade Facilitation, presented the Alliance at a forum on trade with Indonesia and promoted the potential Alliance project in the country. The Alliance is currently working with Indonesia to explore ways to implement trade facilitation measures after the South East Asian country was proposed for a potential project at the Alliance’s third working meeting.

The BVE supports the implementation of trade facilitation measures as an active partner of the Alliance. Further information on the work of the association can be found on its website.
