“We are very pleased to partner with the best experts on the continent in this venture, African Women Agribusiness Network (AWAN-Afrika)”
“What a great job AWAN-Afrika is doing by incorporating women in this whole discussion and bringing their concerns and issues to the fore.”
“You cannot triple intra-Africa trade without boosting agribusiness. Which is where organizations like AWAN Afrika come in. We do admire what they do in the continent. We see them as a role model and we want to urge them to continue to do this,”
“We are going to engage with AWAN-Africa because part of our mandate Is really to engage with the private sector.”
What impresses me is the strength of the network. I developed my network in East Africa! I also got to understand that we have similar issues so we share solutions.
