70 Key agri experts from 24 countries set to take stage at Africa’s largest agri investment and trad
As the world looks to Africa as a solution to global food security concerns, the continents’ agri sector is fast becoming the panacea of the investment world. The agriculture sector is yielding exceptionally exciting opportunities and pipelines. Food security is now being translated into an investable option for investors and financiers. Agriculture has been identified as a long-term opportunity to increase investors’ allocation to real assets and the agribusiness value chain needs to be ready to take advantage of the disruption.
