Dutch Trade Mission: Bring Technology Closer to the Farmer

Given the potential of the agriculture sector, with particular attention to the small scale farmers on whom the sector's and the continent's economic transformation is premised, investments that empower farmers can help reduce poverty five times more than any other economic sector.

As AgriProFocus, we are committed to bring technology and information closer to the farmer. To this regard, AgriProFocus collaborated with the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Netherlands Export Combination and hosted 18 Dutch companies and knowledge institutions active in dairy and poultry at the 4th Agritech Expo in Zambia. The Dutch agricultural companies exhibited their products and were also present to provide information. It was an interesting 3 days program of learning about new technologies and linking.

The Holland Pavilion saw a thousand of farmers dedicated to acquiring expert knowledge in the sector. The government of the republic of Zambia was also not left out as the Minster of Agriculture, the Minister of Fisheries and Livestock, the Minister of Commerce, Industry and Trade and the President of the Republic of Zambia visited the Holland Pavilion to familiarize themselves with the new technology in the sector.

Please contact AgriProFocus Zambia for information on the products and services that were displayed.
