Preparations for the XXIV Latin-American poultry farming encounter that will take place in Guayaquil-Ecuador during the week of September 7th 2015 already started.
The Ecuador National Poultry Farming Corporation (CONAVE) is a trade union that gathers the Ecuadorian Poultry Producers. It was created in 1994 and will be the host of the XXIV Latin-American Poultry Farming Congress (CLA 2015) which will convene 3,000 people approximately. Scientific talks and business rounds are being planned as well as exhibitions of the latest technological advances and good practices in the activity.
All stakeholders involved in the poultry production chain from the continent and the world, are invited.
Such as in other countries of the region, poultry is a very important sector for Ecuador in the socio-economic field. This activity has increased its production four times since 1990 and has contributed to food security and food sovereignty in the country.
Poultry products represent one of the principal animal protein sources for Ecuadorians and are also the axis of one of the most important production chains that shared 13% of agriculture and livestock GDP in 2012 and 4% of Economically Active Population. Furthermore, this activity affects in a positive way to development in the rural zones of the country.
We thank the Latin-American Poultry Farming Association (ALA) directors to trust us the organization of such an important event.
We are working to comply with this challenge.
Due to the Latin-American Poultry Farming Association (ALA) designation, Guayaquil will be hosting producers, exhibitors, scientists and poultry farming business people from all over Latin America on September 2015.
It’s the second time Ecuador welcomes the Latin-American poultry farming family. The XII Congress took place in Quito on October 1991 to which 1,200 delegates attended, accomplishing important results.
An interesting agenda that includes talks and technical conferences about poultry health, genetics, production and environmental management will take place. Space to exhibit the latest equipment, supplies and technology for the activity will be provided. The official languages of the encounter are: Spanish, Portuguese and English.
This framework will also be the scenario for the ordinary meetings of the General Assembly of Partners and for the Latin-American Poultry Farming Association (ALA) Committees.
