Bridging Continents: Agribusiness Canada International Expo 2024 to Connect Africa and North America

In an initiative poised to reshape the landscape of global agriculture, the Agribusiness Canada International Expo 2024 is set to take place at the Queensbury Convention Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan. Scheduled for the weekend of August 10-11, 2024, this event marks a pivotal moment in the ongoing effort to foster sustainable agricultural practices and strengthen ties between the agricultural sectors of Africa and North America.

As the world grapples with the dual challenges of ensuring food security and addressing climate change, the Agribusiness Canada International Expo emerges as a beacon of innovation and collaboration. With a focus on sustainable-driven agriculture, the expo aims to provide a platform for dialogue, experience-based learning, and networking among key stakeholders in the agribusiness sector.

Canada, renowned for its pristine environmental standards, diverse food offerings, and robust export capabilities, stands as a model for sustainable agricultural practices. With the agriculture and agri-food sectors being significant contributors to the Canadian economy, the expo offers an opportunity for Canada to showcase its achievements and explore new avenues for international collaboration.

Africa, often hailed as the world’s food basket, presents immense potential with approximately 35% of its GDP attributed to agriculture. However, challenges such as low farm machinery utilization highlight the need for technological advancement and sustainable development strategies. The expo aims to address these challenges by facilitating the exchange of knowledge and technology between African and North American stakeholders.

Organized by the Afro-Canada Agribusiness Initiative in collaboration with Global Events Canada, the Agribusiness Canada International Expo 2024 is more than just a trade show. It is a concerted effort to merge the expertise and capabilities of two continents in a way that promotes growth, innovation, and sustainability in the global agribusiness sector.

Participants can expect to engage in insightful dialogues, participate in hands-on workshops, and network with industry leaders, policy-makers, and innovators from across the globe. This event not only aims to highlight the critical role of agriculture in the global economy but also to pave the way for future collaborations that could lead to a more sustainable and food-secure world.
