The objective of the project is to improve business environment in agribusiness sector and increase productivity of targeted agro-processing firms in Sierra Leone.
Key Results include:
The proposed project focuses on enhancing domestic value addition in agro-processing through strengthening vertical (forward and backward) linkages between local companies and foreign investors. Such linkages provide important channels for enhancing competitiveness of the sub-sector through flow of new technology, know-how, innovation, and skills. Interventions supporting domestic value addition in agro-processing will involve local and foreign actors that are operating in the sub-sector as well as those that provide goods and services to the industry. Project interventions will emphasize upgrading of local large enterprises and SMEs, enabling them to be competitive in domestic, regional, and international markets.
