Indiana Ag Leaders to Visit Dutch Farms, European Union and West Africa

I am fortunate to be part of the Indiana Agricultural Leadership Program (or AgrIInstutitue).  In the next few weeks, our class will be travelling to The Netherlands, Belgium, and Liberia, West Africa.  While in The Netherlands we will tour a dairy farm, the flower market, The Hague, and one of the world's largest ports, Rotterdam.  Our Belgium visit will take us to the European Union (EU), where we will meet with world ag leaders.  Our stop in Africa will be in the country of Liberia, on the central western coast.  We will work with organizations teaching and developing agriculture in that country.

Our trip was recently written about in The Liberian Observer, the newspaper of the capital city of Monrovia.

A delegation of at least 30 individuals from the Indiana Agriculture Institute in the United State of America, are expected to arrive in Liberia in March of this year to help boost that nation’s agriculture sector. 
The 30 persons are key agriculture leaders with interests and experiences in large corporations, financial institutions and universities. 
The visit would advance and promote the Indiana-Liberia connection that has been strategically impacting the Liberian economy in the past.
