Agrievolution Alliance launches Global Impact Statement – advocates for global agriculture mechanization
The Agrievolution Alliance, representing more than 6000 equipment manufacturers around the world, is advocating for global mechanization of agriculture. Its Global Impact Statement illustrates the vital role that agriculture mechanization must play in feeding the world’s 9 billion people by 2050 along with meeting their increased demand for proteins. The Statement also emphasizes the economic growth that accompanies a strong agriculture industry supported by mechanization, as historically evidenced in many countries. Personally meeting with Ministers, legislators, other government officials and key industry stakeholders, Alliance members plan to spread this message throughout their world regions of Brazil, China, European Union, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, Turkey, UK, USA.
Agrievolution Alliance Supports Agriculture Industry Electronics Foundation [AEF]
AEF promotes the compatibility of tractors, implements and farm management software through the applications and benefits of the ISOBUS electronics communications standard. AEF’s work will help the world’s farmers profit from smarter, compatible equipment; it will enable machinery manufacturers to manufacture a piece of equipment in any country and sell it anywhere in the world without the need for regional standards and regulatory modifications.
Agrievolution Alliance supports European CEMA’s Position on EU and USA Free Trade Agreement Negotiations
In the belief that efficient trade between the world’s two largest agricultural equipment producers benefits manufacturers, farmers and consumers worldwide, the Agrievolution Alliance supports the position of the European CEMA agriculture machinery association that the United States and the European Union (EU) fully consider the following points in negotiations on their new free trade agreement, known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership:
- Harmonization of equipment standards
- Development of a common certification process
- Coordination of new regulations and legislation
The Agrievolution Alliance shares CEMA’s belief that freer trade is increasingly important for global food security. The Alliance strongly supports the concept of free trade agreements on a worldwide basis.
