Entrepreneurship and Agri Business, Agri Allied – A Promising Sector and Agri Service- Direct Marketing will be the themes of the Agri Leadership Summit 2019, the fourth essay of the meet. PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry will be the institutional partner of the three-day meet, which will commence under the aegis of the Government of Haryana on February 15 and take place at IIHM, Ganaur, Sonepat.   

The Summit will play a critical role in creating a comprehensive infrastructure for it. Additionally, it will facilitate revolutionary transformation in the agriculture, horticulture and livestock sectors in the state by bringing in innovative and novel technologies to ensure higher agri and horti produce and growth for the state, including its livestock yield.

Its objective is to provide a platform to a large number of progressive farmers, FPOs (farmer producer organisations), agri input and agri-produce processing industry, from the state and across the country, for interaction with policymakers, scientists and technologists, with overall objectives of increasing the income and quality of life of the farmers and attract investment in agro-related industry in the state.

“The Chamber’s role in it could be to provide for knowledge and intellectual inputs for meaningful deliberations, which would result in the enhanced growth of the sector and rural economy,” said Rajeev Talwar, president, PHD Chamber, in a statement.

The Summit will have key functionaries, representing the state as well industry leaders and experts from the relevant sectors to make the Summit absolutely conclusive in its intended objectives. The PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry would be largely represented by its office-bearers, such as its president, senior vice-president, vice-president and secretary general, Mahesh Y Reddy.

Reddy, in his observations, pointed out that the Chamber partnered in Haryana’s first Agri Leadership Summit, which took place in 2015, and subsequently, with its growing relationship with the state government of Haryana, was likely to suggest to the state by way of intensive consultations with the key industry players as well as owners of technologies and up-skill in the agri, horti and livestock sectors, so that the intended objectives of the Summit were achieved.

“Not only will the productivity and yield of the identified sectors increase and enhance through such institutional arrangements between Haryana and PHD Chamber, but will also lead to the creation of additional employment as well as fuel the growth of agriculture and its allied sectors, since these initiatives would inspire entrepreneurship and attract agri start-ups in the state,” he added.

It was also explained that since Haryana had already taken a lead in the agriculture sector and was one of the significant contributors to feed the nation, as well also contribute to its agri and horti exports significantly, Summits such as this would help the state upgrade and retain its leading position in the sector. As the same time, it would also motivate the women to participate in the emerging agri landscape, as women in the state are equally enterprising, and the government would want their participation to multiply manifold.
