INVITATION TO THE GAUTENG FOOD SUMMIT
The MEC for Agriculture Conservation and Environment Honorable Khabisi

the summit is "Building Partnerships: A Fight against escalating and
Devastating Food Prices."
The details for the summit are as follows:
Date: 10 and 11 July 2008
Venue: NASREC (Johannesburg)
The focus of the summit will be on understanding the root causes of the
current food prices crises and the extent of the problem. Together, we would
develop short and long-term solutions to the problem. The second area of
focus is to prepare recommendations to inform both Provincial and National
government initiatives in finding solutions to this world crisis.
The Summit will discuss the government's response to the food crises, the
role of farmers, the food processors and the role of non-governmental
organizations. The summit will also discuss the economics of food security
and developing a food sustainability strategy for Gauteng Province.
Our department believes strongly in the spirit of building partnerships,
cooperative governance and recognizes that the success depends on the
