U.S. Ambassador John B. Emerson visits International Green Week

On Wednesday, January 22, 2014, U.S. Ambassador John B. Emerson and Mrs. Kimberly Marteau Emerson visited International Green Week for the first time. During their visit to the fair, Ambassador Emerson delivered the opening remarks at a roundtable organized by DuPont and the German agricultural industry association ‘Fördergemeinschaft Nachhaltige Landwirtschaft’ (FNL/ Initiative for Sustainable Agriculture) entitled ‘Food Security Indicators – Diversity of Perspectives’. Ambassador Emerson pointed out that food security is too large a challenge to be resolved by any one of government, industry, or one group of stakeholders.
