UK Export Finance Supplier Fair: Agricultural Development in Africa

Wednesday 09 June - Thursday 10 June 2021



Opportunities to supply to CIITTA and FGV Europe

The International Center for Innovation and Agricultural Technology Transfer (CIITTA) is a non-profit organisation that brings together the main institutions specialised in agriculture and livestock for tropical climates and that focuses on the development of agriculture in Africa.

As a provider of knowledge and know-how to disseminate the best agricultural practices, through training, capacity building and technology transfer, such as the production of highly productive and adaptable seeds for the region, CIITTA, in partnership with African governments, is developing sustainable projects for food production.

In this context a great opportunity has opened up in several countries for UK goods and services in the area of agriculture, livestock, food processing and infrastructure support structures.

CIITTA is currently supporting the Green Imperative project in Nigeria and preparing the financial structuring with the support of UKEF for a second tranche of approximately 500 million € , out of a total of 955 million €.
The project is ongoing with work expected to continue through to 2022.
