First Triennial Western Cape Agricultural Summit
The Western Cape Department of Agriculture will host the first Triennial Western Cape Agriculture Summit on 22 and 23 October 2012 at the Stellenbosch Protea Hotel. Western Cape Premier Helen Zille will be the guest speaker.
The summit will afford stakeholders in both the private and public sectors an opportunity to engage around the identified interventions and prioritised action plans for future sustainability and profitability of the agricultural sector.
The desired outcome is to:
- Support 10% agricultural growth over the next ten years.
- Maintain the sector’s global export market position.
- Create an enabling environment for business to thrive in rural areas.
- Ensure that at least 60% of our land reform projects are sustainable.
