On investment opportunities in food and water - meet CEO Pontus Engström at the SWEACC breakfast event on November 16th, 2022
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN - MTI Investment CEO Pontus Engström will discuss their experiences in East Africa in the agri sector, including the recently announced investment in sustainable protein company Chanzi. The event is hosted by SWEACC - the Swedish East African Chamber of Commerce.
The number of seats is limited and SWEACC reserves the right to confirm each seat for this meeting. All visitors must be preregistered. To register, please contact Kenneth Odwar ([email protected]), Cluster Manager SWEACC Investment Cluster.
Agribusiness is very important in Africa, depending on the country 65-90% of the population is involved in some kind of agribusiness. Some of the challenges you can find in East Africa for water and food security have a relationship to climate change (extreme weather) but also conflict, and lately the Covid pandemic. Lately, we can also see global price shocks that affect both Europe and Africa. Commodity markets are volatile, with increases in energy and fertilizer prices, trade disruptions, and more. These problems also create issues for security when you must create new supply chains and partnerships.
There are acute problems with famine, and water supplies, but also food security even in stable markets. Lacking access to innovation, new technology, and in some cases valid pharmaceuticals and veterinarian medicine creates problems and opportunities.
There is room for new partnerships and joint ventures, strictly private but also public-private partnerships, so-called PPP. Apart from listening to MTI Investment and our experiences in East Africa, we will also learn about other possible partnerships available for Swedish companies in East Africa. Welcome to discuss investment opportunities in food and water.
When: November 16th from 08.30 - 10.00 (event will start precisely at 09:00).
Where: Hammarbybacken 27, Stockholm (B-Open Nordic office).
