Member of the organizing committee of the exhibition Mrs. Cathy Mbanga said growth in the sector can be realized through a coordinated approach from the concerned stakeholders in the industry.

 

“We are optimistic the show will go a long way in supporting government efforts in economic empowerment,”Mrs. Mbanga added.

 

The one day agriculture fair which drew over 20 exhibitors gave farmers an opportunity to interact with suppliers and share knowledge on ways to enhance farming activities.
