AGRIBUSINESS CENTER IN KENYA

Spain and Kenya are going to be linked by a new project for the good of the agribusiness sector of the Eastern Africa Region.

A project to create an Agribusiness Center in Kenya has been agreed to be developed by qualified promoters: the universities of Chuka (Kenya) and Cartagena (Spain), the RIDA rural development agency (Kenya) and the company AGROLUTION (Spain)

.

The goal is to transfer cutting edge knowledge and technology in agribusiness from Spain to Kenya and from there to neighboring countries like Uganda.

The deal was sealed by videoconference last month and the project is expected to take off on 2013.

You shall find further news about this project in this blog.
