Brief of the Conference and Expo

The 1st International Potato Value Chain and Root Crops conference and Expo, was created to generate ideas on how to push forward the frontiers of the massive cultivation of Potato and other root crops development in Nigeria. The target is to deepen the production and expand the market through the enrichment of business ideas as well as conducting specialised trainings on modern Machine Operations for local farmers and attendees. These exposures would enable them address the challenges of massive production, processing, preservation, promotion and packaging of the byproducts of potatoes and that of other Roots crops in Nigeria.Indeed, the conference and Expo offer Participants opportunities to network, be introduced to the latest mechanized farming equipment and tools, all to increase their productions and their investment returns. 

Plateau State has a comparative advantage in the massive cultivation of different varieties of Potatoes. The programme would by extension address persistent post-harvest losses suffered from zero processing and preservation facilities. This is also in-line with the economic diversification drive of the Next Level Agenda of the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, which centres on improving the nation’s Agricultural value chain.The conference and Expo is therefore conceived to add value to the entire value-chain of the Nigerian Agric. Sector by annually assembling major stakeholders, the best brains in the industry, to evaluate the sector, identify areas requiring improvement, with a view to guiding and advising the federal and state governments on policy directions and actions.

About thirty (30) international guests and companies from Germany and other European countries have indicated interest to attend, including GRIMME-Germany (Member of German Agribusiness Alliance under the leadership of Frank Nordmann– Co-Chair-German Business Alliance. Specifically, over 25 equipment manufacturers from German Agribusiness Alliance have confirmed their participation and interest to exhibit their equipment at the Expo. Also attending are European Investors interested in buying Nigerian Irish Potato. The scope of the exhibitions would cover Production, Processing, and Preservation, Packaging and Promotions.  Managed by ABG Paulas Resource Limited the conference and Expo is billed to hold from November 9 to 11, 2020 in Jos, the Plateau State capital. Because of its international importance the event has been endorsed by the Plateau State Government, the African Union, and NIRSA, anticipating a robust debate and pragmatic resolutions that would define and birth concrete results.Participants are drawn from the entire value chain of the Nigerian Agricultural sector as well as international partners.

ABG Paulas Resource Limited, is a Nigerian Germany-based company with a profound interest in promoting bilateral business relationships between Nigeria and the Republic of Germany.
