EastAgri Annual Meeting, Berlin, May 2006EastAgri Annual Meeting, Berlin, May 2006

The EastAgri Annual Meeting 2006 was held in Berlin on 4 & 5 May 2006. Representatives from international financing institutions, development agencies, donor governments and the private sector, as well as from the ministries of agriculture in a number of the countries concerned, attended the session. The two-day meeting, sponsored by FAO, EBRD, CEI and the World Bank, and hosted by the German Corporation for Technical Cooperation (GTZ), explored, among other issues, promising approaches to rural finance in the early transition countries (ETCs). Participants at the meeting also reviewed issues limiting the development of Ukraine's agriculture sector, as well as current and planned interventions by donors and international financing institutions with a view to achieving greater coordination of assistance. Other topics of discussion included an examination of successful public-private partnerships in rural finance and agricultural development throughout the region, and the adjustments that Western Balkan countries need to make to integrate their agricultural markets into European Union markets.
