It comes as a great pleasure to present the Agri BDS Network three year’s strategic plan. This coming Thursday 8 September,
The network was launched in 2016 in a collaborative effort between of Spark with AgriProFocus. From the on-set the organization’s development followed a systematic approach leading to legal recognition. The network started with 30 members who had the common and innovative vision of enhancing quality, standards, value, accessibility and profitability of the Agri Business and development services in Rwanda.
The establishment of this network is timely as the country seeks to use business driven approaches to meet current demand in country and to increase exports. In time the Agri BDS Network can help to fill gaps and support existing services in areas such as finance, inclusive markets, value chain costs structures and market distortions.
In July 2016 members of the network and partner organizations came together for a one day strategic planning workshop. During the workshop participants come to a common consensus of the strategic issues, goals and objectives for the next three years.
In this half day workshop, the consultancy team will present to members of the network its strategic plan, which the team has been working on from June.
