In an exclusive interview with ViEUws, Syngenta’s Jon Parr talks to AGRA FACTS journalist Rose O’Donovan about the role of the private sector in contributing to sustainable agricultural production. The Chief Operating Officer at the agri-chemical giant outlines the key tenets of its Good Growth Plan launched over two years ago and underlines that there is no place for business as usual if the world is to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Parr also responds to questions about the recent bid by the Chinese chemical firm ChemChina to take over his company.
