Leading national and international experts were gathered to discuss global food production and markets when The Centre for Commodity Market Analysis at the NMBU School of Economics and Business hosted their annual commodity conference on November 21.
The conference was held at Felix Conference Centre, Aker Brygge, and addressed approximately 40 invited participants from academia, public administration, business and politics. We would like to thank the participants, and in particular the conference speakers, for making this day an interesting contribution towards the debate on food production and food security.
