Grow Africa Investment Forum Summary Available

The Grow Africa Investment Forum Summary is now available. The two-day Grow Africa Investment Forum convened 250 African and global leaders in Kigali, Rwanda, from 10-11 May 2016 and focused on affirming the leadership vision for African agriculture through country-specific investment opportunities and accelerating investment into specific value chains where tangible opportunities have been identified and progressed.

Four interactive value chain sessions were held on cassava, rice, potato and seed, followed by four best practice and innovation sessions, seeking to generate greater levels of innovation to address shared challenges and bottlenecks that hinder agricultural development and investment.

Country-specific investment opportunities were shared with investors through sessions dedicated to presentations by ministerial delegations from Rwanda, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Tanzania, Nigeria, Kenya and Senegal.
