African agriculture economies 'bright spot' in disappointing global economy
Africa is on the move, with signs of progress and growing prosperity for millions of its people. The continent has witnessed sustained economic growth and a modernisation of its economy for more than two decades powered by an increasingly inclusive agricultural transformation and by rapid growth in digital innovations.
The Pan African Farmers Organisation (PAFO), CTA and Agricord (International alliance of agri-agencies) have engaged in a joint project to improve the efficiency of farmer’s led enterprises and hence improve productivity, market access and livelihoods for smallholder farmers.
Sustained trade expansion and economic growth in the ACP countries provides the needed hope that the sought success in pushing back the frontiers of poverty, informal economy, youth unemployment and trade inclusiveness is within reach.
