The Politics of European Agriculture and EU Trade Negotiations

Rory O'Donnell, Managing Director of International Agriculture, Food, and Trade, Penta Group

The Politics of European Agriculture and EU Trade Negotiations

“I think we’re getting past the luxury of just being against things”, Penta's Rory O'Donnell on global food security.

Farmers' protests in Europe are reshaping the political landscape as the European Parliament elections approach, with the protest highlighting a frustration among European farmers as they navigate tougher competition, rising production costs, and concerns over the environmental impacts of initiatives like the Green Deal strategy.

With that in mind, today we delve into the intricate world of European agriculture, exploring the evolving landscape of agricultural policies within the EU, their global ramifications, food security, and lessons that Asia can learn from Europe and vice versa. Joining us is Rory O'Donnell, Managing Director of International Agriculture, Food, and Trade at Penta, who brings over three decades of experience in the UK Civil Service and a deep understanding of EU affairs.
