‘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.

In this week’s CTA Brussels video interview, Prof. Eric Tollens, Professor at the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering (FBSE) of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, tells us a bit more about agricultural research and development (ARD). He explains how agricultural research and extension projects support innovation by smallholder farmers and reduce rural poverty. He is the chairman of the Executive Board of CTA since 2013. He has a very long experience in research having worked with the major research organizations and also having practical experience in Africa.

Namibia has ruled out chances of renewing an economic partnership agreement (EPA) with the European Union if the trade deal does not promote Namibia’s ambitions to industrialise and integrate its economy with regional neighbours.

The European Union has reviewed its relations with Zimbabwe and has today taken a further step towards normalisation of those relations. This reflects not only the progress that has been made but also the challenges that remain. The EU has taken these steps to support the Zimbabwean people to achieve a more prosperous and democratic future.
