Jersey at the Paris Agricultural fare


Jersey was pleased to recently participate in the Paris International Agricultural Salon at the kind invitation of La Manche. On 22 February the Island’s Minister for External Relations, Senator Sir Philip Bailhache, made a visit to the Salon joining Philippe Bas, Senator and Vice Chairman of the General Council of La Manche. On 25 February Jersey’s Minister for Economic Development, Senator Lyndon Farnham, joined Presidents Mayer-Rossignol and Beauvais of Upper and Lower Normandy at the official opening of the Norman stand, “Normandy régale le monde”. On both occasions Jersey’s Ministers joined Norman leaders to celebrate the Island’s important agricultural industry. With approximately 700,000 visiting the Salon, it was clear that the public took pleasure in visiting the Norman and Jersey stands. Jersey’s “tea time” and “after work” themes were well received, particularly the tasting of beers from the Liberation Group that had recently enjoyed success at the International Brewing Awards.
