Next Brussels Briefing: Revolutionising finance for agri-value chains

‘Revolutionising finance for agri-value chains‘– this is the theme of the next Brussels Development Briefing – organized by the Technical Centre for Agriculture (CTA), together with the DG Development and Cooperation of the European Commission (EC/DEVCO), the ACP Secretariat and the European NGO confederation for Relief and Development, Concord. The event will take place on Wednesday 5 March 2014 at the ACP Secretariat, in Brussels. 
The first session will look at finance as a key driver for value chain development and will discuss the concept of agricultural value chain finance, new opportunities for financiers, and the new context of value chain finance in Africa – including the development of ICTs that support innovative applications.
The second panel will examine the innovations in financial instruments and services and will present concrete examples of more current applications on the ground which demonstrate the potential of value chain finance for shaping African agriculture. 
Confirmed speakers include: Calvin Miller from FAO Agribusiness and Finance Group, Lamon Rutten from CTA, Saleh Usman Gashua from Afraca, Hans Bogaard from Rabobank, Hans Balyamujura from ZED Group Limited, Adam Gross from Nepad Business Foundation.
