4th Commercial Farm Africa

Democratic Republic of Congo has recently launched its first agricultural business parkspread across 75,000 hectare. DRC’s President Joseph Kabila has pledged to reform Congo’s agriculture sector. The country has as much as 80 million hectares of arable land and some 70 percent of its population are involved in farming. However, commercial farming is yet to take off. DRC spent a whopping $1.5 billion on food imports in 2014 alone. How will this agribusiness park and other initiatives transform DRC’s agriculture sector?
