Agriculture is the fuel that will drive industrialisation of African countries

What you need to know:

  • Most African countries have stagnated in their growth because of poor policies that focus on wrong sectors and ignore agriculture.

  • Africa’s farmers are usually viewed as poor people with little chance of ever moving into a middle class lifestyle.

  • The first step towards this transformation is modernising agriculture at the farm level.

No country has ever industrialised without growing its agricultural sector. By extension, it is agriculture that will power African economies because it is all-encompassing, affecting food security, rural economies, political stability, basic nutrition as well as job creation.
