Chamber participates in forum to strengthen Kentucky’s agriculture economy

In April, Gov. Beshear’s Office of Agriculture Policy launched a series of forums across the state to create a community dialogue about ways to bolster Kentucky’s agriculture economy. Agriculture specialists, public officials and opinion leaders from each region gathered to discuss potential ways their area could benefit from assistance by Kentucky’s Agriculture Development Fund.

Kentucky Chamber Director of Public Affairs Chad Harpole was on hand at a forum in Kentucky Dam Village on Tuesday to offer the business community’s input on how best to expand the state’s agricultural development efforts.

“The business and agriculture communities have a lot of shared interests. Whether the product is Kentucky-made or Kentucky-grown, there is a place for products that are uniquely Kentucky in the world market,” said Harpole. “Both business and agriculture could benefit tremendously from working together to cross promote the products and services that only we can offer.”
