African agriculture is very attractive for German businesses. Participants in the 2nd German-African Agribusiness Forum, also organised by the German Agricultural Society (DLG), discussed opportunities and challenges.

In the run-up to this year’s EuroTier, the world’s leading animal production trade fair, which was held in Hanover/Germany in mid-November 2016, the focus was on Africa. Together with the German Agricultural Society, the German-African Business Association and the German Agribusiness Alliance had organised the 2nd German-African Agribusiness Forum under the topic "Challenges and Opportunities along the Value Chain".

The organisers welcomed almost 100 high-ranking representatives from international agribusiness, administration, ministries and the consulting and agricultural extension services industry. The participants included an encouragingly large number of embassy representatives from countries in Africa such as Benin, Botswana, Ethiopia, Cameroon, Kenya, Rwanda, Zambia, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Tunisia and many others. The attendance of a numerous representatives of German businesses underscored the considerable interest taken by German agricultural firms in African agriculture.

In three separate panels, the discussion addressed the issues of “Livestock – Dairy, Meat and Poultry Processing Industry in Africa” and “Processing, Packaging, Storage and Transport” as well as the role of banks, investment funds and public-private partnerships with a view to “Financing Agricultural Projects in Africa”.
