Europeans support bid to help African farmers realize potential

By EDITH MUTETHYA in Nairobi, Kenya | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2021-01-14 00:00

Entities from Europe are joining their peers in Africa to promote the development of the farm sector on the continent, especially in the Sahel region.

The entities have signed on to a charter committing themselves to action on the issue. Those involved say Africa's agricultural sector represents an exceptional lever of growth and point to its resilience in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

Unlike other industries that were hit hard by the pandemic, the farm sector was not unduly affected by the movement restrictions brought in to counter the coronavirus' spread. The high demand for food products in cities has been a powerful force behind the increase, those involved in the initiative say.
