Knowledge and Innovation: SIAM’s DNA!
A ritual rooted in the heart of spring, SIAM’s 7th edition, the International Agriculture Show in Morocco, is an urban ode to the rural world.
This year’s main theme will be “Research & Innovation”, cueing last year’s topic “Agriculture Solidarity”. Inspired by an increased sensitivity to environmental issues, this year’s theme is closely related to the need for an ongoing search of sustainable agricultural practices and competitiveness in line with current climate matters pervasively present. The presentation and enhancing of these innovations will also be a testimony of pioneering development still to come, offering to our secular farming a great opportunity to fully enter tomorrow’s agricultural world.
The agricultural sector, essential for development in a constantly changing environment, contributes significantly to the environmental trends as well as the land use planning.
At the heart of all challenges (Growth, food security, sustainable development, energy independence), History of agriculture is landmarked by innovation in order to ensure its primary mission: to feed mankind.
In order to support the process of this green evolution, the SIAM offers an innovative space, bearing a new definition of farming. It’s potential consists in creating positive effects by formulating relevant answers to complex questions, based on strategic partnerships and efficient international cooperation.
