In the week 13 – 17th February, 2017, AgriProFocus organized three information sessions for Dutch companies in the Poultry and Dairy sectors. The objectives was to share information on the business opportunities in Zambia and encourage them to join the Trade Mission. As the Business and Partnership Coordinator, it was my job to facilitate match making between businesses.


 My first time visit to the Netherlands was a great experience. Despite the cold weather, the people there were very friendly and welcoming. The Dutch business I met are interested in the opportunities in Zambia and Africa. The participation at the Information Sessions was less than expected but the quality of the interaction was good. We had a good meeting with NEC on the coordination and logistics of the Trade Mission and this experience helps me to do my next task in matchmaking and get on board more Zambian businesses. So far we have 17 dairy and poultry companies that signed up for the mission.
