Event description

Description

It is no gain saying that foreign investment makes any Nation more prosperous, more innovative and competitive in today’s global village environment. There is a strong relationship between foreign investment, economic growth, and inflows of foreign investments needed for a country to achieve a sustainable high trajectory of economic growth.

The rise in the levels of international investment capital in African agriculture and agribusiness has taken the investment thesis directly into the intensely political arena of global food security, safety and land rights. But more foreign investments in agriculture in Africa should be expected as long as food safety and security remains a top agenda item for the western world.

The argument that foreign investment in agriculture holds key to Africa’s food security, particularly when it is aimed at supporting smallholder agriculture and sustainable farming, is a relatively straightforward one and more comforting. But, the trends in the acquisition of huge tracts of African agricultural land by foreign governments (directly or through sovereign wealth funds), and by multinationals, investment banks, hedge funds, private equity firms and speculators creates a slightly more tortuous and disturbing picture.

To this end, US Trade Council and Tetragrammaton International Ltd hereby seek your indulgence to register and attend this 3 DAY NIGERIA AMERICA FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT SUMMIT (NAFDIS) to be held at the Sheraton Atlanta Airport Hotel and the University of Georgia, March 22nd - 24th, 2017.
