The main theme is ‘Crossing Borders, Building Bridges’, and some of the key topics to be discussed include:

  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.
