3rd German-African Agribusiness Forum

Global | | Frankfurt, Germany

The topic of the Forum this year is the "Opportunities and Challenges along the Value Chain: Tailor-Made, Sustainable adn Smart Solutions".

Over the coming decades, agriculture will be the main motor of the African labor market. Three quarters of the population in Sub Sahara Africa are already active in this sector. This is also crucial for the economic growth of African countries, accounting for one third of GDP in this region. Nevertheless, the productivity of agriculture is nowhere less than in Africa.

New approaches by German and African political decision-makers, business opportunities for the German economy in cooperation with local entrepreneurs as well as innovative solutions from Africa and Germany will be presented.

The conference language will be English.

This year’s forum focuses on Projects. Participants can apply to present their agricultural projects at the Agribusiness Forum to find the right partners and investors. The application form can be found on the website of the event.
