At the 2017 conference, brought to you for the first time by Farmer’s Weekly, panels take a critical look at the challenges that has discouraged investment in Africa’s farming sector and discuss the way forward for agri-investment on the continent.
The main theme is ‘Crossing Borders, Building Bridges’, and some of the key topics to be discussed include:
- The role of business in helping agriculture in Africa prepare for a volatile future;
- The bureaucratic challenges of doing business in Africa;
- Developing appropriate financing mechanisms and value-chains for Africa’s farmers;
- Correcting Africa’s agricultural trade balance.
