Agriculture & Food Processing

Agricultural policies around the region have recently seen the introduction and implementation of broad market reforms meant to facilitate a more balanced and effective sector. With this improved potential, several notable domestic and foreign investments have been made in the sector over that last few years, providing the industry with valuable business experience, management skills, marketing techniques, know-how and technology implementation. Because the sector remains largely fragmented, there is a great need for its modernization and restructuring, which opens a great niche for investors to get involved at a lower cost.
