The GROW Africa Partnership works to increase private sector investment in agriculture, and accelerate the execution and impact of investment commitments. The aim is to enable countries to realize the potential of the agriculture sector for economic growth and job creation, particularly among farmers, women, and youth.
Grow Africa works through national partnership platforms that it helps to establish and provides guidance through a network of knowledge partners and topic specialists. Grow Africa also has a vast network of national, regional and multinational companies that it can leverage for the benefit of value chain actors in the country and is currently working with Private Enterprise Federation (PEF) in Ghana.
In that regard, Grow Africa in partnership with PEF is organising a stakeholder consultative meeting on Thursday November 2, 2017 (8:30 am) at Coconut Grove Regency Hotel, Accra. The upcoming meeting is aimed at enlisting the private sector practitioners in the agricultural value chain to discuss options to enhance opportunities and increase private sector investments in the sector. It will provide an opportunity for private sector investors, commodity platforms and other value chain actors to familiarise themselves with the work of Grow Africa and further understand the resources available from GROW Africa and how stakeholders can leverage these resources to organize or continue their businesses.
The target participants are agribusinesses especially businesses along the rice and cassava value chains.
Kindly express your interest to participate in the upcoming event by contacting Grow Africa’s Country Operations and Partnerships Lead, Ms. Etami Ndoping on firstname.lastname@example.org, or Paddy Joshua on email@example.com and Michael Nana Osei on firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday 27th October 2017.
Kindly note that this event is strictly by invitation.
