Tunis to host AfDB’s seminar on agro-food processing zones in Africa, February 12-14

A Seminar on the Exploitation of knowledge on the challenges and opportunities in relation with the management and implementation of agro-food processing zones in Africa will be held on February 12-14 in Tunis by the African Development Bank (AfDB) Agriculture and Agro-Industry Department.

Drawing on the analyses and outcome of a study conducted by the bank among a sample of 10 African countries, the seminar aims to draw lessons and good practices from African experiences in terms of management and establishment of agro-food processing zones, the AfDB said in a press release published on Friday.

The study’s analyses, conclusions and recommendations will be discussed between public sector leaders on the actions to be carried out to iron out the obstacles and foster agro-industry development on the continent.

The seminar will offer the opportunity to work out national master plans for the agro-industry sector, conclude south-south co-operation agreements to exploit knowledge through export and adaptation of good practices, establish innovative public private partnerships (PPP) and create agro-enterprises to generate jobs and foster a strong and inclusive African growth.

The meeting will bring together about one hundred representatives of sector-based agricultural and industrial departments from Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Mozambique, Tanzania and Togo.

A visit to the Bizerte agropole is scheduled as part of the seminar.
