Britta Hübers coordinates the Farm Assurer Capacity Building Project in China, which is funded by the German Development Bank. Within the framework of this project, GLOBALG.A.P. developed a practical training program in Good Agricultural Practices for students that can be added to the general curriculum of agricultural studies. In cooperation with Farm Assurers, certification bodies, and retailers, GLOBALG.A.P. successfully conducted trials with students of Yunnan Agricultural University in Kunming City, China this year. The training sessions closed with 30 students receiving a GLOBALG.A.P. Young Professional certificate, which offered new opportunities for internships and jobs.
After several years of work experience with Asian business partners, Britta Hübers studied Business Studies and China Studies in Germany. She spent two semesters in China to improve her language skills and write her thesis during an internship at an agricultural consulting company. During that time, Britta gained valuable work experience in the agricultural sector and a deep understanding of Chinese culture.
