Zambia will join other countries and institutions from around the world that will discuss sustainable and identify progressive ways of ending poverty at the 4th German-Africa Agribusiness Forum in Berlin, Germany.
Minister of Agriculture Dora Siliya will be the main speaker at the global platform which will be held on the 18th of January.
The Indaba will give the minister an opportunity to share the Zambia agriculture experience to the rest of the World.
The meeting which draws experts from various institutions globally is timely as President Edgar Lungu increases the call for diversifying the country’s economy.
It is one of the many initiatives of the influential German Africa Business Association known by its German acronym Afrika-Verein that recently paid a courtesy call on the Zambian embassy in Berlin.
Zambia is one of the few countries that escaped the harsh negative impacts of climate change and recorded a bumper harvest in 2015 when other countries in the region suffered a damaged maize crop.
