The National Food and Agric Show Secretariat – FAGRO Secretariat – assures all exhibitors, sponsors and patrons of the upcoming FAGRO 2016 that preparations are in top gear to make the event a compelling success.
“We are looking forward to a great event which will turn out to be rewarding to all stakeholders. The one-stop platform for all exhibitors will offer amazing networking opportunities that should snowball into a number of business deals. FAGRO 2016 will leave stakeholders with unforgettable experiences” Alberta Nana Akyaa Akosa, General Manager, Fagro Secretariat, stated.
This year’s event is themed: “Preparation, knowledge and Training = Business”, and it comes with a free training session for agribusinesses aimed at shoring up their business plan writing skills. The training will be facilitated by officials from IE Singapore and Africa Lead, who are both event partners. Trainees will undertake a proposal writing contest at the end, after which the best three (3) proposals will be assisted to access grants to boost their businesses.
“We chose this theme because after FAGRO 2016, we expect stakeholders in the industry to begin to see and approach their endeavours as businesses that require proper management to be sustainable and hugely successful. FAGRO 2016 is packaged to serve as the icebreaker in changing the complexion of Agriculture in Ghana”, Alberta added.
Among the institutions that will be mounting exhibitions at FAGRO 2016 include, RST, Wynca Sunshine, Stanbic, The Netherlands Embassy, Yara Ghana, Israel Embassy, Tikola, Ranaan Fisheries, Young Farmers League, Kickstart, Lakesyde Farms, John Deere, Daysah Ventures, Wienco, Association of Agricultural Teachers of Ghana, Central Regional Fishermen Association, National Award Winners Association, Cocoshe, Sens Fish Ventures, Brazilian Embassy, Dizengoff Ghana, Esoko, Agriseed, All directorates under the ministry of food and agriculture, etc.
We invite all stakeholders, students and the general public to come, network, learn new and best practices in agriculture and identify business leads and opportunities.
