Microphone Why vibrant rural economies drive agri-sector strength

Ruth Thomas, director of the Global Agribusiness Alliance, talks with Innovation Forum’s Ian Welsh about the GAA’s new digital platform designed to connect SMEs with sources of finance. Thomas argues that agri SMEs are the economic backbone of many developing economies and can be a powerful force for integrating and empowering women and young people. And they discuss the need for better visibility and transparency to ensure SMEs are able to take advantage of available sources of investment.

Global Agribusiness Alliance is a sponsor of Innovation Forum’s sustainable landscapes and commodities conference series.
