Goya Chair analyzes the Andalusian Strategy for the Agri-food Industry

The permanent seminar of the Goya Chair in the agri-food industry continues with its program. Thus, on April 29th it will host a new session by the Director General of Industry, Innovation and Agri-Food Chain of the Andalusian Regional Government, Carmen Cristina De Toro Navero, who will analyze the main aspects of the “Andalusian Strategy for the Agri-Food Industry. Innovation and New Technologies”.

The “Andalusian Strategy for the Agri-Food Industry. Innovation and New Technologies”, approved last February, is presented as a roadmap for the period 2024-2027 through which it seeks to improve the competitiveness of agribusiness in Andalusia, with a view to this key economic sector to consolidate its leadership and be an engine of wealth and employment generation and promote balance in the agri-food chain.

In this sense, the first Andalusian Agri-Food Industry Strategy is a commitment to the value chain of the agri-food industry, with a strong focus on efficiency, balance and transparency, as well as the application of the circular economy in this sector, with investments that guarantee the supply and efficiency in the use of water and energy. Thus, the document will develop instruments for the qualification of personnel and the attraction of talent for a competitive and developed Andalusian agribusiness, with special interest in the promotion of cooperative mergers, intercooperation and alliances for the promotion of an efficient and sustainable sector at social, economic and environmental level.

Another key aspect is the commitment to research, modernization, digitalization and industry 5.0, as well as the promotion of investment and diversification in the agro-industrial sector for greater internationalization. Similarly, it is committed to the commitment of the Junta de Andalucía for administrative simplification, the promotion of obtaining quality certifications and the promotion of Andalusian food abroad.

This document, which will be developed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water, Fisheries and Rural Development, aims to be a tool to facilitate the adaptation of the Andalusian agroindustrial sector to the current and future market requirements, so its preparation will take into account their needs through close collaboration and dialogue with all economic and social agents affected and with the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mines.

The new session of the seminar of the Goya Chair will take place at 1 p.m. in Classroom 2.1 of the Polytechnic School.
