NY02027 - Understanding of Global Trends

This tour has resulted in extensive industry media coverage, the development of international industry contracts and networks, international promotion of our products, services and accreditation schemes especially the Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme, Australia as well as increased motivation and enthusiasm from industry members for their professional development.  The nursery businesses that were visited should be congratulated for opening their doors to their American colleagues. The information exchange that resulted proved to be very beneficial to both parties.
