The Focus of the 2nd Agro Industry Dialogue is to engage stakeholders in the selected sectors – horticulture, dairy and tobacco to come up with policy recommendations and strategies that support the development of sustainable agro industry supply chain networks in the region. The recommendations shall be streamlined into an advocacy position for the Agro Industry Work Group which shall be used for advocacy at various COMESA policy organs platform including the COMESA Trade and Customs Committee and Council of Ministers.

The objectives of the event are to:

  • Share best practices and develop strategies for the development of sustainable agro industry value chains within the COMESA region.
