Agbiz Information Session in Paarl creates platform for discussion

Following a successful information session in Gauteng on the 1st of November 2018, Agbiz presented a similar session in Paarl two weeks later, offering insights on current challenges in policy and the legislative environment, as well as highlighting developments and opportunities for growth in the agribusiness sector. Agbiz has unique insight, through its representation on various structural engagement forums, into the political economy, policy and legislative environments, and the session created a platform for discussion on specific legislation, including land reform, water reform, climate change, as well as important trade, economic and agricultural economic indicators.
