Kenyan agri-entrepreneurs to visit Netherlands

Agribusiness stakeholders in the country are set for a trade mission to the Netherlands to study innovative food production systems and agricultural export models. The three-day mission will largely focus on horticulture, but integrate general agribusiness, seeking to expose Kenya to the Dutch’s developed and sustainable economy, mainly driven by innovative agribusiness production. The tour, which will run from June 11 to 15 2018, has been organised by Changemaker International and Capacity Africa, an initiative that supports youth to harness their potential as change-makers. “The key objective of this mission is to strengthen local production systems, access international markets, stimulate local food production and expand investment opportunities in agribusiness,” said John Karegwa, the organisers’ spokesperson. Through the involvement of partners such as GreenTech Trade Expo, and the Netherlands Export Combination (NEC), experts from the international horticultural industry, research institutes, and governmental institutions will share their insights and experience with the Kenyan delegates. With trade volumes between the two countries standing at Sh60 billion in 2016, Netherlands is Kenya’s third largest trading partner, with major Kenyan exports to Netherlands comprising horticulture, and importing machinery, chemicals and services. The country is also the second largest exporter and importer of agribusiness products and has positioned itself as a world leader in agricultural innovations and hence provides the best lessons for developing agricultural economies like Kenya.
