Hakan Agro DMCC pledges support to G-8’s New Alliance for Food Security & Nutrition , an initiative by African Union, NEPAD and World Economic Forum

In order to boost responsible private sector investment and facilitate greater partnership between African governments, the private sector, and development organizations, the G-8 is launching the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition which will catalyze private sector investment in African agriculture. Leveraging the work of Grow Africa – a public-private partnership platform co-led by the African Union, NEPAD, and World Economic Forum – the New Alliance is already underway. First wave private sector investment pledges across the agricultural value chain, including irrigation, processing, trading, financing and infrastructure already stand at over $3 billion and could potentially impact millions of smallholders.
