Confagricoltura hosts foreign Embassies

The regular meeting between the Organization and the agricultural attachés at foreign embassies in Italy and working together in the O.S.C.A.R. Group, was held this morning in Palazzo della Valle – the Confagricoltura headquarters.

O.S.C.A.R. (Ordine Speciale Consiglieri Agricoli a Roma – special order of agricultural attachés in Rome) is an informal Group having been set up some thirty years ago on the initiative of representatives from Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

With time it grew to include all the attachés wanting to join as members. There are currently about 70 attachés in the O.S.C.A.R. Group, comprising those from the countries in the European Union, the United States, China, Turkey and others.
The Group meets once a month to exchange information and ideas on Italian agriculture. Italian is the common language, purposely chosen to demonstrate intention to open up towards our country.
Confagricoltura regularly organizes a friendly venue with the Group to exchange information and points of view on current agricultural issues. Aspects concerning implementation of the PAC 2014-2020 reform in the various countries and the 2030 reduced emissions issue, particularly in relation to problems for agriculture, were discussed today during the meeting.
