Why Agriculture And Food?

Past experiences have once again revealed the strategic importance of agriculture. Currently, the rise in food prices is uneasy in the markets due to the similarity to the 2007-2008 crisis. This necessitates close follow-up of global markets.

In the short term, measures should be taken against speculative movements which will take power from these price increases. However, it is estimated that the world population will reach up to 9 billion by 2050 and food production should be increased by about 70% in order to satisfy this population.

In addition, the growing middle class in developing countries is increasing food expenditures. For these reasons, in the long term, the increase in demand for food products will be inevitable. The acceleration of the efforts to increase agricultural production and productivity is on the priority agenda of all countries in the world.

No world country can afford to give up agricultural activities that supply raw materials for food and food production. On the contrary, no matter how advanced, rich, civilized and advanced technology it has, the country has to invest in, support, encourage, find investors and seek new markets.
