Global Food Security in an "America First" World

10/17/2019 7:00 AM - 8:30 AM
Davenport Hall, 3rd Floor | Des Moines Marriott Downtown
David Hong, Government Affairs

For many professionals in the development community, the primary rationale for why the U.S. government should provide foreign  assistance has always been obvious. However, in the wake of the 2016 presidential election, new voices and perspectives have criticized these long-standing assumptions. The American Farm Bureau Federation and Farm Journal Foundation would like to invite you to a lively policy discussion that will examine the nexus between American agriculture and global food security. Breakfast will be provided.

Speakers:

Mr. Roger Thurow
Senior Fellow
The Chicago Council on Global Affairs

Ms. Renee Strickland
Rancher and Farmer Ambassador
Strickland Ranch and Farm Journal Foundation

Mr. Craig Hill
Farmer and President
Iowa Farm Bureau

Mr. Tom Sleight
Former CEO
U.S. Grains Council
