French President Affirms Europe’s Inclusion Of Blockchain For Agriculture And Food Tracking Is A Big Deal
French President Affirms The Blockchain Could Put Europe At The Vanguard Of Innovation Again
The president of France, Emmanuel Macron, has recently affirmed that technologies like the blockchain technology could be an important boost for innovation in France in the whole of Europe. According to him, data technologies could boost food traceability and several other services in the country.
He talked at the 56th International Agricultural Fair, which happened in Paris at the weekend. There, he spoke about the need for the authentication and tracking of products, something that is more important every day.
According to Macron, Europe could be the vanguard of technological agricultural data with the help of these tools that would help the continent to offer a considerably better service at tracking products and offering this information for the customers later.
This, he believes, would let Europe bring several benefits for a population of customers which are now considerably more concerned about the food that they are ingesting than how people were before. He affirmed that the innovation is “there” and must be used in the agricultural world in order to put Europe ahead of the other nations and continents.
Macro, Blockchain And Europe
President Macron has been calling for innovation in France for a while now. He is a believer in entrepreneurship and currently has a strategy to move the agricultural policies of the whole continent forward. He deems this important as climate change and market risks could harm farmers and consumers in the country, so using the technology to solve this problem is important.
At the time, Macron is trying to gather support for the blockchain with his peers. If he is successful, he will try to establish an European task force to take care of the situation and to ensure international standards for agricultural products.
