On September 25, 2009, the first series, aiming at government officals was concluded.The aim was to encourage them to makre more funds available for organic farming: 85 million US Dollars have been available for investments since 2006, so far, however, only 35 million have been spent.

A further workshop will deal with the development of the organic norm for Mexico. The Costa Rican and Argentinian experiences will be presented as well as the European regulation.
