Opening Speech at the session Food Market: Polish food sector vs. global raw material crisis – to survive or to win? at the III European Economic Congress in Katowice, Poland.
Food security concerns us all, because it is about the earth's resources, which we all share and use, and because food is vital for life. That’s why we need to ensure that everybody in the world has enough food to eat or the resources and means to grow their own food. Today, 16 October, is World Food Day. For us in the wealthy Europe it is a day to reflect and to consider what we can do to contribute to a change.
