SA agriculture grows sector at international show

South Africa is participating in the sixth International Exhibition of Agriculture and Animal Resources being held in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

Known as the Salon International de l’agriculture et des Resources Animales (Sara), the bi-annual event brings together the agricultural expertise of Ivory Coast, the sub-region and the world.

Sara aims to promote agriculture products, livestock farming, fishing, forestry, and the agro-food industry to an international audience.

Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development Deputy Minister, Mcebisi Skwatsha, is attending the event, which opened on Friday last week and will run until next Sunday.

The minister’s department said the event was a pragmatic implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area through inter-regional and inter-country value chain development.

“Various stakeholders across the South African agriculture fraternity will spearhead South Africa’s exhibition during the Abidjan event. This will promote technical and technological expertise and richness of our local products.

“Furthermore, it will expose South Africa’s small producers to the international market system,” the department said in a statement.

The event will be held under the theme “African agriculture facing the challenges of internal and external shocks: Structural innovations to improve the agricultural sectors and guarantee the food sovereignty of our countries”. – SAnews
