Future Market Africa!

Business Round Table at AGRITECHNICA 2019


Agrarian and food economies in Africa are on a modernisation pathway.

Which business opportunities are embedded in the tremendous technical catch-up demand? How do successful business models look like? Which techniques are required? What does help as far as financing exports and investments are concerned? Which pitfalls have actors to think of?

African and German companies will share their practical experiences and will discuss about how to develop business models and adapt options towards modernisation. Furthermore, representatives from financial service providers and governments will discuss options to finance businesses in Africa on the basis of success stories and challenges.

AGRITECHNICA provides a unique platform for manufacturers, import and export companies and financial service providers of agricultural equipment to meet. On the occasion of the „Business Round Table“ in particular these actors from European and ten African countries have the chance to compare notes in order to sound precise market opportunities.
