Rural and agricultural economy and their value chains play a key role for fostering economic growth, job creation and development in ACP countries. Private sector investments are essential for unlocking this potential. In the context of EXPO Milan, the Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development of the European Commission organised the conference on "Agri-business investments in partnership with farmer's organisations in ACP Countries". The conference engaged stakeholders and partners to work on a common blue-print for smart agri-business investments in ACP countries in partnership with farmers' organisations.
