As I embark on this new career journey, I am extremely excited about strategically advancing the challenges within this sector; being part of RTRS is an opportunity to contribute to a sustainable future for soy production. In this role, I recognize the importance of keeping on building strong relationships with stakeholders, including farmers, industry experts, civil society organizations and policymakers.
