France to collaborate with Kwara Govt on Agric Development


French representative in West Africa Dr. Sonia Darracq has described the recently launched Kwara State Agricultural Transformation Plan (2020-2030) as “the best possible strategic plan in terms of agribusiness development”.

“It goes deeply through all sectors and value chains, including the education and training aspects. From it, any potential investor certainly feels reassured and comforted that Kwara is an agribusiness friendly state. It encourages investors to come and see by themselves,” Darracq, who is the Regional Agricultural Counsellor for Benin, Cameroon, Ghana, Niger, Nigeria, and Togo at the French Embassy, said during her visit to Kwara State.

She said plans are underway by French private companies to partner Kwara State government in different fields of agriculture – livestock, agricultural equipment and machinery and other value chains.

A massive win for Kwara state! :clap:t4:
