Royal Orchid Azure Hotel, Nairobi
THEME : CLOSING THE 'PRODUCTIVITY GAP'
Africa’s economic future depends on success in agriculture, which in turn depends on empowering famers (especially smallholder farmers (with less than two hectares) - who constitute about 80% of all farms) - to increase productivity by adopting modern farming methods. However, success in agriculture which in turn ensures food security can be a daunting task. There are myriad factors and interrelated parts that, in combination, make food security a complex challenge.
This 2 day conference will kick start discussions addressing the needs of a dynamic food security program. Climate change, agri inputs, water scarcity, land rights, fairer agricultural policies, technological developments- all of these issues and more will be addressed as we seek ways to infinitely maximize the crop yields on existing resources in- face of ever-decreasing farm size due to land subdivision as Africa's population grows. The Exhibition will run alongside the event and will show case latest technologies and other innovative products and solutions.
Transforming the sector from subsistence-based agriculture to commercial agriculture for smallholder farmers presents huge economic opportunities.
The Annual Banking & Finance Conference 2018
THEME : "Making Financial Inclusion a Reality in Africa: Connecting people to Banking & Financial Service" couldn’t be timelier. The 2016 edition was held in Ghana and the 2018 edition will be a continuation of the discussions and a preview of the implementation strides made thus far, as we continue to push the Financial Inclusion agenda in the continent.
Banking and financial services must seek ways to increase their mass and tap into the financially excluded population (which is more than 60 %). The agenda to deliver financial services to those that banks have traditionally not reached should now more than ever be at the top of corporate growth strategy.
