Global agricultural and food markets are growing at unprecedented rates. A recent report by the World Bank projects agriculture and agribusiness in Sub-Saharan Africa to become a US$1 trillion market by 2030. We invited one of the contributors to the above report, Ms. Tugba Gurcanlar, Trade Specialist at the World Bank's Finance and Private Sector Development to talk about the growing market opportunities and constraints in African agriculture and agribusiness. Ms. Gurcanlar also explored the role that financial institutions can play in realizing the agriculture growth potential. We also invited Mr. Habil Olaka, Chief Executive Officer of Kenya Bankers Association to comment on what banks in his region can do to capture the share of Africa’s US$1 trillion opportunities.
