Opportunities for Dutch companies active in the agri sector!
Are you an entrepreneur who is interested in the agri sector of
Uganda? Join the trade mission at the end of November 2017! The
trade mission includes participation in the 5th edition of the annual
Agribusiness Congress East Africa by means of a Dutch pavilion.
OPPORTUNITIES The East African market is one of over 145.5 million consumers and its
agriculture is valued at more than $147 billion. There is ample
opportunity to establish East Africa as the continent’s agricultural hub.
The region’s agriculture sector is not evolving fast enough to meet
market demands due to the lack of commercialisation,
mechanisation and access to information. Companies from the
Netherlands now have the opportunity to respond to the demand of
the East African agri sector.
AGRIBUSINESS SECTOR UGANDA
Due to the opportunities above, the Netherlands Export Combination
(NEC) and AgriProFocus organise a trade mission including fair
participation to Kampala, Uganda. In addition to a seminar and a
number of farm visits we will also be attending the 5th edition of the
Agribusiness Congress East Africa by means of a Dutch pavilion. This
is an annual event including a 2-day conference and fair. The
congress will be held on November 29 and 30 and will bring together
important parties within the sector: government, business and knowledge institutes. Visitors of the
event are government officials, large and emerging farmers, financial institutes, banks, project
developers, traders, retailers, development agencies and solution providers. These visitors come from
Africa (mainly East Africa) and other parts of the world.
