Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannAs we start the New Year, we hear a lot in the media about the slowdown in emerging markets, even the end of convergence between rich and low-income countries. To paraphrase Mark Twain, “news of slowdown is greatly exaggerated”. While BRIC countries’ growth is slowing down, this is not the case for most of the other 150 low and middle-income economies. Sub-Saharan Africa, for example, is continuing to grow at a good rate in spite of drops in oil and other commodity prices. While much of that growth is driven by services (notably telecommunications, banking, modern marketing and tourism).

The rise of these sectors doesn’t overshadow the basic reality that productivity increases in agriculture worldwide continue to play a fundamental role, because the sector employs more people than any other, and because improvements in agriculture and the associated supply chains increase the real purchasing power of local food consumers, i.e., the vast majority of the developing world’s population. In short, agricultural and agri-business govern food security and are big drivers of economic growth. I am therefore pleased to announce that GBSN is partnering with the International Food and Agribusiness Management Association.
