French agriculture delegation to visit Jersey

19 April 2012

A delegation of politicians and agriculture experts from the French department of Ille-et-Vilaine will visit Jersey on 24 and 25 April 2012 to learn more about how the Island is supporting its rural and agricultural industries.

The Minister for the Department of the Environment, Deputy Robert Duhamel, and the Assistant Minister for the Rural Economy, Deputy Carolyn Labey, will greet the delegation, which will be headed by the Conseil Général d’Ille-et-Vilaine’s Vice President of Agriculture, Louis Dubreil, and Conseiller Général, Pierre-Yves Reboux.

During their visit, the delegation will also meet a number of local industry representatives from companies including Jersey Dairy, La Mare Vineyards, the Jersey Royal Marketing Company and the Jersey Oyster Company.

It is expected that discussions will focus on government support for the agriculture industry, with particular emphasis on the support measures available to new businesses. This visit follows an officer exchange programme between Jersey and Ille-et-Vilaine last year, which saw officials from France and Jersey sharing their expertise in this area.

Deputy Duhamel said “Both the Department for the Environment and the Economic Development Department welcome the opportunity to share knowledge and expertise with our French counterparts. I look forward to building on the well-established and productive dialogue on countryside issues that we currently enjoy with the department of Ille-et-Vilaine.”
