A Market Oriented Economy
The Challenges for Syrian Agricultural Policy

 

As the first activity of the 2007 Agricultural Policy Forum of the National Agricultural Policy Centre (NAPC) of the Ministry of Agricultural and Agrarian Reform, a seminar on the Agricultural Risk Management was delivered. This seminar was entitled "Agricultural Risk Management in a Market Oriented Economy: The challenges for Syrian Agricultural Policy” was presented by Dr. Carlo Cafiero, from University of Naples, Italy, on 23rd of January 2007 at the NAPC premises.


The seminar sought to outline theoretical aspects related to the concept of economic risk, and then to link them to the context of agricultural production in a system of incomplete markets (of which Syria is an example). Following that to present some possible private risk management strategies that might be adopted in order to combat this risk at both the private (farmer) and public (policy-making) level.


In his presentation, Dr Cafiero introduced to the audience the most relevant issues concerning economic and social risk directly linked to agricultural activity. He highlighted which challenges the Syrian economy is likely to face during the rapidly evolving process of economic and political development currently taking place in the country. He therefore attempted to indicate the positive role that the government could play to manage such risks. For more details download the proceedings
