DIT paves way for sub-Saharan business at LAMMA ’18

Exhibitors and visitors to LAMMA ’18 wanting to do business with sub-Saharan Africa will have the opportunity to learn about opportunities in the region and meet delegates from several countries at the event.

As part of its role to strengthen agri-business success in both UK exports and inward investment, the Department for International Trade’s Agri-Tech Organisation returns to the LAMMA show at the East of England Showground, Peterborough on 17th and 18th January.

DIT is bringing a delegation in from Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia to meet UK companies who would be interested in doing businesses in those markets.

The organisations include Ndurwa Millers (Uganda) Limited, Agrovet Farmers, Totco Lira and the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries from Uganda, MeTL from Tanzania and SARO Agri from Zambia.

DIT is also planning to run some short briefings on doing business in sub-Saharan Africa and will include sessions on opportunities in machinery, grain and wider agriculture. The organisation also hopes to bring in UK Export Finance to provide advice on accessing export finance and support for these markets.

The Department for International Trade Export Advice Centre will be located in Hall 2, stand 207. LAMMA visitors and exhibitors can have an informal chat at the show or can contact the centre directly ahead of the event to arrange a private meeting.

Interested parties should email DITAgritech@brayleino.co.uk for further information or to request a meeting.
