Oklahoma-Azerbaijan Agriculture Forum Coming to Oklahoma City and Stillwater

Thu, 24 Oct 2019 21:00:23 CDT

Oklahoma-Azerbaijan Agriculture Forum Coming to Oklahoma City and Stillwater The Oklahoma-Azerbaijan Agricultural Forum is set to be held November 6-8 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The forum will bring together experts, agriculture industry representatives, agribusiness manufacturers, and government agricultural authorities from Oklahoma and Azerbaijan to share best practices and explore partnership and investment opportunities in both economies.

“We are excited to host Azerbaijan officials in Oklahoma and are eager to see the potential partnerships cultivated from this forum,” said Oklahoma Secretary of Agriculture, Blayne Arthur. The group will spend time in Oklahoma City as well as on the campus of Oklahoma State University in Stillwater.

It is the second forum of its kind bringing together agricultural producers and policymakers from the U.S. and Azerbaijan. The Oklahoma-Azerbaijan Forum will cover practices in farm management, regulation and promotion across a wide range of crops and products, with a special focus on animal husbandry and livestock.

Oklahoma is the number one producer of rye and second largest inventory of beef cattle in the U.S. Agriculture makes up $7.1 billion of the state’s annual economy and agricultural exports bring the state $1.9 billion per year. The state of Oklahoma and the Republic of Azerbaijan have been cooperating within the U.S. State Partnership Program since 2003. The successful partnership between the Oklahoma National Guard and the Republic of Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Defense has created a solid basis for expanding this cooperation into the agricultural sector.

The Oklahoma-Azerbaijan Agricultural Forum is being co-organized by the United States-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce (USACC), the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Azerbaijan, in partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry; the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Azerbaijan; the U.S. Embassy in Azerbaijan; the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the United States; and AmCham Azerbaijan.
