It is less than one week to go to Agriculture Summit Africa, a massive program where players along the Agric Value chain gather together to make deliberate decisions to move the sector forward. The Summit which is tagged “Agriculture-Your piece to the trillion-dollar economy” among other things seeks to achieve 4 key things which include:
1. To provide a platform for multidisciplinary discussions on pervasive issues and practical solutions that would drive an integrated approach for food security in Africa while exploring an inclusive Agric trade liberalization agenda and facilitate intra-African trade.
2. To unveil current Agricultural trends, innovations, and opportunities for private and public-sector investment and participation in Africa
3. To showcase the Agricultural transformation trajectory – the future of Agriculture in Nigeria and Africa with a view to ensuring current and prospective investors and players harness these opportunities for maximum impact for the African economy and the players while driving relevant enabling policy changes
4. It will also serve as a platform to introduce the digitalized commodity platform, Sterling Afex Binkabi Exchange (SABEX) with the goal of on-boarding multinationals, conglomerates, such as Olam, Nestle, Flourmills, Feed millers and the commodity business market at large on the platform to block the access to the market gap.
Key players in the value chain will be participating in the program to speak and deliberate on major issues in the Agric sector. These areas include Potentials of Commodity Exchanges in Africa, digitization and disruption, opportunities in Africa’s Livestock Industry, Enabling the Agriculture Value Chain-The Role of Financial Institutions in enabling Agriculture value chain, Gender Inclusiveness in Agribusiness and lots more.
