IFAJ Congress 2015 held in New Zealand

New Zealand is an island nation at the bottom of the world which is unique among developed countries for having export agriculture as the biggest driver of its economy.

From 14 to 18 October 2015, the World Congress of the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists took place in New Zealand. The congress was based in Hamilton, a farming, science, and agribusiness hub in the centre of the North Island.

Around 150 were here to see for themselves what has made New Zealand a world-leader in many areas of agriculture, horticulture, viticulture – and much much more!

Delegates and others have followed all the NZ Congress 2015 action on this website, the IFAJ newsletters, our Facebook page, or Twitter stream via @IFAJ2015NZ.
