Africa SpotLight GFIA2015

GFIA 2015, will attract professionals from around the world across the entire value chain, represent an event of paramount importance for all stakeholders involved at any level in sustainable agriculture.

Many experts agree Africa has the potential not only to feed itself, but much of the world. As the continent with the majority of the world’s remaining untapped fertile land, the importance of Africa cannot be overstated. However, agriculture is constrained by lack of investment in technology, lack of infrastructure and low productivity. At the same time, many countries around the globe – especially in the Middle East – need the surplus agricultural output that Africa has the potential to generate.

The advantages of partnering with African countries are very clear. However, long-term, equitable and sustainable partnerships are difficult to create. By bringing together key players from Africa, the Middle East and internationally, GFIA speeds up this process.
