Ethiopia to Host the 4th International Coffee Conference

Ethiopia is set to host the 4th International Coffee Conference from March 6 – 8, 2016 in Addis Ababa at the United Nations Conference Center. Previous conferences were held  in England in 2001, Brazil in 2005 and Guatemala in 2010.

The conference, which will be held under the theme “Nurturing Coffee and Diversity”, will see close to 1,500 participants such as local and international coffee producers, buyers, decision makers, private sector representatives and international agencies, said the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources in a press release it sent to EBR.

During the three day conference on top of major deliberations, there will be site visits, side panels, and exhibitions, which will create an opportunity for Ethiopia to promote its development and create more market opportunities for Ethiopian coffee.

Expected outcomes of the 4th International Coffee Conference include – fruitful linkage and discussion between coffee producers, exporters, buyers, researchers and supplier to the coffee industry; to grow the relationship Ethiopia has with the International Coffee Organization; attendance of presidents of coffee growing African countries; and growing existing market opportunities of Ethiopian coffee and creating new ones.

To this end, a secretariat under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources has been established. To facilitate and expedite information access and registration, a dedicated website for the conference has been created with all the relevant information.

    Hi, just wanted to let you know that we had a great time at Marina de Bolnuevo in June of this year. We flew into San Javier and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are superb, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The bars were great, with paella on the beach a must and managed a day on the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures. Will be returning there again next year. Thanks for reading Niall.
