The NEPAD Business Foundation (NBF) hosted the first Mozambican Southern African Agriculture Development Partnership Platform (SADDPP) workshop in Maputo on 21 May 2013, bringing together the country’s agribusiness players and government agencies in deliberations on partnerships that can increase investment in the agriculture sector.
Speaking at the conference, Peter Esterhuysen, General Manager of Senwes Grainlink said, “This is something new and with the backing of USAID, this initiative will work. There is a clear vision of what SAADPP in Mozambique should be doing coming out of this workshop.”
Lyn Schneider, Agriculture Service Officer for USAID, also said, “It has been impressive to see the high level of commitment to this programme. The programme really brings in the private sector as partners.”
