MIOA First Delegate in Peru MINAGRI

 

Terry Long, Chair of the Market Information Organization of the Americas (MIOA) will present an overview of the MIOA Toolbox, a five-part training series developed for MIOA countries and in collaboration with the USDA Market News Service.

Javier Paredes, Peru, will present his observations on the Toolbox, as he and his team of professionals in Peru recently completed a training course that incorporated all five of the modules.   He will share any thoughts on how to improve or expand upon the Toolbox.

The Toolbox was intended to be an ongoing resource for MIOA professionals and key stakeholders, covering the key components of most agricultural market information systems. The goal of the Technical Presentation is to review the modules and to have a discussion on how to improve the toolbox and increase its usefulness for the member countries, their professional staff, and their key stakeholders. Ideas or topics:

  • How to improve and adjust the contents of the toolbox to better meet the needs of our delegates?
  • What do you recommend to the countries before using or participating in training using the Toolbox?
  • What other topics could be included in the Toolbox?
