The 10th World Potato Congress will be held in Cusco, Peru.
It is the first time this triennial event is held in Latin America.
“The World Potato Congress Inc. is dedicated to supporting the global growth and development of the potato.”
This is achieved by bringing together the broad potato industry represented by both developing and developed countries. The World Potato Congress facilitates access to useful and applicable information. Ultimately The World Potato Congress results in a network of common interest, ‘a global potato family’ with all the interests and practical concerns inherent in such a diverse group.
World Potato Congress Inc. is a non-profit organization supported by a group of volunteer directors representing potato jurisdictions around the world. Congress Events are hosted in partnership with local host committees.
The 2018 congress will be held in tandem with the 28th Congress of the Latin America Potato Association, ALAP. This will be an excellent opportunity for delegates of both events to learn from and share with one another.
The theme of this world potato conference is "Biodiversity, Food Security and Business"
