THE MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT
under the leadership of Minister Jan Krzysztof Ardanowski, for the first time in the history of the National Potato Days, he assumed the role of its co-organizer. This is closely related to the active policy of Minister J.K. Ardanowski, aimed at raising the importance of Polish agriculture as well as expanding the possibilities of cooperation with foreign markets for Polish agricultural producers and the national agri-food industry. The support of the XXVI National Potato Days as one of the most important specialist events in Europe is also part of the government PLAN DLA WSI and PROGRAM FOR POLISH POTATOES. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development as a co-organizer guarantees a high-ranking event, substantive and media support. The support of all persons and units subordinate to the ministry that have been involved in the project is also invaluable. All elements make up the final result of international and national promotion of Polish agriculture in this Polish potato industry. Poland as the second in Europe and the world’s ninth producer of potato has something to be proud of, and the support of government administration makes it possible to do it in a professional manner while maintaining high quality and substantive standards of the organized exhibition and scientific and technical conference.
