2019 African Green Revolution Forum Takes Off In AICC

The 2019 African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) has begun at the Accra International Conference Centre.

It is being held under the theme: “Grow Digital: Leveraging Digital Transformation to Drive Sustainable Food Systems in Africa”.

The week-long forum would discuss policies, programmes and investments needed to solve the major challenges affecting agricultural sector in Africa.

The participants would share ideas and mobilize billions of dollars from both public and private investments towards transforming the sector to create jobs and improve income of farmers.

It will also evaluate how far the African Continent has progressed in the past decade and look at ways to jumpstart what needs to be done differently in the next five to 10 years, to put Africa’s agriculture on a new footing with digitization, as a key driver to the agricultural transformation.

The event will attract 2,300 delegates from Africa and across the globe, including Heads of State, Ministers of Agriculture, Central Bank Governors, captains of industry, development partners, representatives of farmer organizations, youth entrepreneurs and other critical stakeholders.
