Agriculture is the Key to a Prosperous Africa (Financial Times)

Dec 6, 2017

Financial Times published an op-ed by Rwanda’s Minister of Agriculture Agnes Kalibata on the potential of agriculture to transform the African continent. In the article, Kalibata, president of AGRA, cited an IFPRI research that found additional investments in agriculture increase farm productivity, spurring GDP growth. "Only investments can replace imports that squander potential and drive the young away," wrote Kalibata.
