What Our Participants Are Saying:

I found the Summit very enlightening and just as important a productive way to network. I greatly appreciate the work that your organization has performed.
                                                       - Adrian Banks, Global Trade Finance Division, Mizuho Bank, Ltd

I really enjoyed the OGTS. Good content, good location, good networking. Speakers were good overall, especially the last keynote as we certainly want to be aware of what’s going on outside our region and I am personally very interested in international ag.
                                                 -  Chris Laughton, Director of Knowledge Exchange, Farm Credit East
