Africa is home to six of the ten fastest-growing countries in the world. Agriculture and agribusiness together account for nearly half of GDP in Africa
Agricultural production is the most important sector in most African countries, averaging 24 per cent of GDP for the region. It is projected to be a US$1 trillion industry in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) by 2030 (compared to US$313 billion in 2010)
UK companies are perceived well in the market and there is a demand for technology particularly in areas where opportunities are greatest: livestock, crop protection, mechanisation, processing and storage
