The success story as the largest agricultural showcase that is Agritech Expo Zambia is a great source of pride for the ZNFU. Last year the event featured several international pavilions again and a VIP attendance that included three cabinet ministers and the Zambian President Edgar Lungu who visited the event for the fourth year in a row.
Mr Zimba says the huge success of last year’s Agritech Expo in the face of numerous challenges, including the economic crunch and cholera and FMD outbreaks in the area, “showed that the organisers, the local partners and the government always manage to work together and towards excellence and year after year deliver an outstanding product that has proven to be valuable and indeed unmissable for regional farmers of all scales, exhibitors and sponsors alike.”
This year the event at GART is expected to bring more than 20 000 visitors, over 220 local and international exhibitors, including international pavilions from Germany, Italy, UK and Zimbabwe to name a few, with 3500 VIP and large scale farmers and 150 members of the media. Agritech Expo Zambia is free to attend for all visitors that pre-register.
