Law firm Montero Aramburu and Legal Dealmaker co-organise the conference ‘Agribusiness, new challenges’, which will be held on Tuesday 10 May morning at the Hotel Jerez in Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz).
The meeting will comprise two round tables that will provide an important working platform to address the present and future of the agricultural and agri-food sector. Under the titles “Sustainability, renewable energies and innovation in the agri-food sector” and “Challenges of the new CAP. Reform of the Food Chain Law. Legal security, rights and needs”, representatives of sectorial groups such as ASAJA, COAG, UPA, and Cooperativas- Agroalimentarias, as well as business representatives and in-house lawyers from the sectors involved along with Montero Aramburu’s own professionals will meet to debate these highly topical issues.
Montero Aramburu partners participating in this workshop day will be Miguel Cuesta Boothman, Ignacio Albendea Solís, Agustín León González and Soledad Fernández Reyes, while the moderator of both tables will be Desiré Vidal, director of Legal Dealmaker.
This will be a pioneering forum that will provide cross-cutting solutions to the concerns of many of the actors in the food chain: the use of renewable energies, sustainability objectives, generational change, and the application of new technologies and artificial intelligence in the search for innovation. With regard to the legislative innovations of the new CAP, the definition of the figure of the active farmer, direct aid and redistributive payments, the concept of “eco-regimes” or specific subsidies for preferential crops, are some of the issues that producers will have to adjust to.
