Agribusiness Africa Conference

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:

  1. The role of business in helping agriculture in Africa prepare for a volatile future;
  2. The bureaucratic challenges of doing business in Africa;
  3. Developing appropriate financing mechanisms and value-chains for Africa’s farmers;
  4. Correcting Africa’s agricultural trade balance.
