A Message from the President

Dear AAEA Members,
It was with great sadness and heavy hearts that we learned of the passing of Giovanni Anania on July 15, 2015. Giovanni was Professor of Agricultural Economics at the University of Calabria in Italy and President of the European Association of Agricultural Economists (EAAE) at the time of his death. Giovanni was a widely known scholar and a close friend to a great many AAEA members. His warm smile and friendly nature will be greatly missed. I first met Giovanni at a conference in Capri many years ago and I still have the personal gift that he gave to all of the meeting attendees. This was Giovanni—a friend to everyone with exceptional hospitality and warmth to all.

Giovanni received his PhD from the University of California, Davis and was a favorite among the large community of scholars with ties to Davis. Giovanni had a very long and distinguished career and was one of the world’s leading experts on European agricultural policy and international trade. On behalf of the entire AAEA membership, as well as the International Agricultural Trade Research Consortium (IATRC)—of which Giovanni was a long-time, active member—we express our sadness and condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues. Our profession has lost one of its best and our future meetings and professional interactions will never be the same without the warmth and friendliness of Giovanni Anania.

Barry Goodwin
AAEA President
