Hosted by His Excellency Abdul Moneim El-Banna, the Egyptian Minister of Agriculture, ‘Ingredients 2 Inspire Africa: Finance & Agribusiness Conference’ is the ideal forum to network and take action around the unlocked potential of the agribusiness sector in Africa.

The worlds of finance and agribusiness will be brought together as business leaders, government ministers, IPA’s, private sector companies and private equity firms unite to facilitate bilateral agreements that grant access to funds that support innovative agribusiness projects in Africa.

The time to invest in African agribusiness is now.
