The Colorado Department of Agriculture is honored to co-host the 26th Tri-National Agricultural Accord in Denver, Colorado on October 17 - 19, 2017, along with the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA). The Tri-National Accord is an annual meeting of senior state and provincial agricultural officials of Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Participants include representatives of the United States federal government as well as corresponding federal officials from the participating countries. The objective of the Accord is to address agricultural trade and development issues by working together collaboratively.

The Accord will kick off Tuesday afternoon with country meetings and an evening Welcome Reception. Following a series of bilateral and trilateral meetings Wednesday, delegates will have the opportunity to see Colorado's agriculture and food production first hand. The Accord continues on Thursday with delegate meetings and will conclude with the closing dinner and signing of the communique Thursday evening. We hope to see you in Denver! 

Jalisco Secretary of Rural Development Héctor Padilla Gutiérrez, Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Jeff Leal, and NASDA President and Connecticut Commissioner of Agriculture Steven Reviczky sign the communique of the 26th Annual Tri-National Agricultural Accord.
