Skypemøde - netværk

DAFC and the Danish Embassies in Addis Ababa and Kampala invite you to discuss business opportunities in East Africa’s transformation of the agricultural sector.

 

Ethiopia

Denmark has an ambition to strengthen its relations with Ethiopia, which were enhanced by the new 5-year DANIDA country programme for Ethiopia. The programme has a strong agricultural development component. With an annual economic growth exceeding 10 pct. the last decade Ethiopia offers great business possibilities to the Danish Food Cluster.

The Danish Embassy in Addis Ababa will make a general introduction to the Ethiopian agriculture and food sector. Further the embassy will present a planned business delegation to Ethiopia 7-11 May 2019 with site visits to the Agrofood Ethiopia 2019 fair. The business delegation programme is made in cooperation with SMEdenmark and DAFC.

 

Uganda

Uganda is an upcoming market with great possibilities within the agricultural sector. Danish businesses can play an important role in creating growth and jobs in Uganda, which is a focus area in the new DANIDA country programme. The Ugandan government is increasingly focusing on green and sustainable growth - an area where Danish businesses hold a strong position. Opportunities are particularly expected to exist within agriculture.

The Danish Embassy in Kampala will make a general introduction to the Ugandan agriculture and food sector. Further the embassy will present a plan for a business delegation to Uganda 28-31 October 2019 with interesting site visits. The business delegation programme is made in cooperation with DAFC.
