The Agro Academy has been implemented in the form of original meetings by BNP Paribas Bank since 2016. Its main idea is to provide farmers with specialist knowledge in the field of financing agricultural activities and general knowledge about business, necessary in running farms, which comes from professional companies serving the agricultural sector. These meetings are an opportunity for education, substantive discussion, and raising current issues for the environment, as well as fostering its integration. The Agro Academy concept is in line with the policy of BNP Paribas Bank, which aims to take care of customers’ finances, but also to provide them with substantive support in the business.
