Agribusiness | What does it take to Create a Successful Agribusiness Venture?


During this session, panelists discussed their views on building a modern and economically viable agribusiness sector given Africa’s arable land, investment opportunities and the need to address food security. The moderator opened the session with the question of what constitutes a successful business venture. Although panelists had a slightly different definition based on their own experiences, they all agreed that the common thread that determined success was the development of a viable agricultural value chain, complementary public/private partnerships, good training programs, access to finance, and a supportive enabling environment (government).

Understanding Africa’s Fast Moving Consumer Goods Industry

Africa is growing at a rate of 5+% and the rest of the world agrees that Africa is rising.
 
So how do we distribute and sell fast moving consumer goods (FMCG)?
 
There is an incredible opportunity to sell to the 4 billion poor people of the world but in order to do so, one needs to understand price, product and distribution. With FMCG, it’s all about understanding the local market.

The Business of Conservation


Minister Mzembi and Mr. Richer opened the panel with discussion on the vital role conservation plays in attracting visitors. Mr. Mzembi identified conservation as 80% of the African tourism product, including national parks and wildlife watching.  This important factor will require community co-management of the resources, human and wildlife co-existence, interaction between conservation, and ecosystems, and effective law enforcement, particularly to curtail poaching. There must be realism on how conservation for the purposes of tourism relates to how local communities exist. Simply put, conservation will require community buy-in and an understanding of how conservation contributes to both its short and long term quality of life issues.

Infrastructure | African Resources to Unlock Infrastructure Financing


The discussion addressed the issues, instruments and techniques used to create successful achievement of goals set in the post 2015 development agenda. These measures are in reference to the Millennium Development Goals for infrastructure financing and for unlocking the financing for those projects effecting Africa’s progress and growth. Panelists emphasized Africa’s ability to realize the 2030 timeframe as contingent on the global community’s cooperation and interest. One of the measures mentioned was the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), which is a merger of the Millennium Partnership for Africa’s Recovery Program (MAP) and the Omega Plan. The discussion is rooted around the visions and policies contained within the framework, potential priority subsectors for infrastructure financing, as well as how to unlock venture capital. Water and sanitation, as well as energy and transport services are just a few of the infrastructure sectors in need of capital. These sectors were mentioned with emphasis on ways to attract stakeholder investment.

Security | Linking Maritime, Airport and Port Security to Increased Trade


Security will become more and more important as the middle class increases and travel becomes more prevalent.  As Africa is not well endowed with roads and railways, airplanes are the most used for travel and trade.   Therefore it is in the interest of government and private sector to review, improve and enforce security procedures at Africa’s airports while waiting for other modes of transportation to catch up.

Driving Economic Growth Through the Automobile Sector

The Automobile Sector in Africa is one of the sectors that has the potential to uplift a great number of people. It is already playing a significant role in Africa’s economic growth as the middle class expands and sees its purchasing power grow.

To boost this sector, African governments need to adopt a globally standardized regulatory framework to ensure the quality of products. An example to follow is the European market where policies are consistent from one country to the next.  A few nations such as Morocco stand out as they have succeeded in creating a framework to address the needs of the sector.

Agribusiness | The Role of Women in Agribusiness

The moderator opened the session stating that the most pressing challenge facing Africa is how to harness the full potential of the agribusiness sector where African women play key roles along the value chain from production, processing to distribution. She cited that the major opportunity for transforming Africa’s agricultural sector lies in the dynamism of food markets. As evidenced, she cited the World Bank estimates that Africa’s market for food could be valued at more than $1,000 billion by 2030 compared to $313 billion today. She also stated that in order for this transformation to occur, Africa has to be a player in the processing of food and women, who currently make up 50% of the agricultural workforce but have less than 3% ownership.  Before opening the floor for discussion, she talked about the path forward leading to increased output, world class products, inter-African trade and a shift in finance to support value added goods.

Finance | Financing Africa's Private Sector Growth
In contrast to companies that have their own funding, emerging markets do not have the global reach to start their own businesses and are heavily dependent on new funds.

In order for African markets to attain this funding, a reasonably good governance and institutional framework needs to be implemented. In addition, there must be a clear track record on quality before a business can function as an independent corporation.
Currently, except for a promising real estate industry, it is indeed a challenging market for fundraising especially with the Macro market facing falling commodities prices.

Still in light of all this criticism we have to acknowledge the fact that because of imperialism, Africa’s private sector is only 20 years old and therefore has plenty of room to develop.  With time and patience, Africa’s private sector will catch up to the West and the stock exchange, as seen in Nigeria, is going to play a vital part in private sector growth and prosperity.

Africa’s 21st Century Workforce: Increasing Skills
There is a mismatch between higher education and the job market outside academia, despite the fact that African governments are spending as much as twice the average public expenditure per university student in a year. African institutions have traditionally prepared students for public sector jobs, neglecting the needs of the private sector. Not only does the public sector struggle to absorb the increased demand for employment, but an additional burden is that university degrees which are often the entry requirement for government jobs, do not teach the necessary skills needed for such work, as they have never been specified. Most degrees tend to cater to bureaucratic and procedural tasks rather than innovative work: a problem of both public and private employers. Universities are spending a lot of unnecessary time and effort to train a workforce that companies have to retrain on hiring.
