Mexico received representatives from 34 countries comprising the Inter-American Institute of Cooperation for Agriculture.

Mexico and the continent face enormous food challenges that will lead to the implementation of major regional efforts to guarantee the continent’s food security.

The challenge is to boost America’s agro-food productivity in a competitive, inclusive and sustainable fashion through public policies that reach a greater number of producers.

The challenge is to democratize productivity in order to boost regional development and reduce social inequality and poverty.
Productivity is the best means of improving conditions in the countryside in America.

Mexico renews its commitment to the Inter-American Institute of Cooperation for Agriculture and its member states. As president of the Council of the Inter-American Meeting, we will work together to ensure that the countryside on our continent produces more and better crops and manages to feed everyone.
