Mr. Minister Adrian Oros, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the special guest of the event was in direct dialogue with the participants of the event, presenting the plans of the Ministry, which generated a series of questions and proposals from the farmers present in the room.
Mr. Nicolae Badea, Moderator of the Panel, brought to the attention of Minister Oros, 2 topics of great interest:
- the innovative field of research in order to preserve brands with Romanian tradition and specificity, for example: gene banks in animal husbandry, in the area of poultry breeding and in agriculture, areas that deserve to be re-consolidated
- the remodeling of agricultural processes, absolutely necessary both in the administrative area and in the technology area.
The Minister emphasized that research is very important, especially applied research, which serves the common interests of farmers.
In addition, there are examples of good practices and the digitization of programs in Agriculture is desired. At the moment there are several databases, but unfortunately they are not interconnected.
As a conclusion of the event, Mr. Nicolae Badea, emphasized that it is necessary for the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to have its own IT strategy, which emphasizes the need for digitization, through open systems.
