A KEY CHALLENGE IN AFRICAN FOOD AND AGRICULTURE


The question of market access is of crucial importance for Africa. African countries have continued to put emphasis on this question since the establishment of the World Trade Organization (WTO), given how crucial market access is for their development agenda – more so agriculture development.

The Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) and the Malabo Declaration have both emphasized boosting intra-Africa trade in agricultural commodities and services, and as such presenting a real opportunity for Africa to emerge as a big winner in the current global environment.

SPONSORSHIP AND EXHIBITION OPPORTUNITIES

Market Access Africa is the industry’s MUST-ATTEND event, providing the ideal setting to develop relationships, explore ideas and expand into new markets. There are limited and exclusive sponsorship and exhibition opportunities available for organisations wishing to gain high visibility and reach to Africa's agri movers and shakers.
