Governor Umaru Bago is attending the Agribusiness Seminar scheduled from January 7th to 10th, 2024, and taking place at the Harvard Business Campus in America.
The seminar is a long-standing event where global business leaders discuss the evolving and volatile agribusiness sector, focusing on exploring industry challenges and innovation opportunities as well as seeking to shape the future of agribusiness and discover techniques for long-term success.

The topics include strategic objectives, mitigating risks, preparing for trade disruptions and geopolitical upheaval, balancing sustainability with short-term and long-term goals, meeting diverse consumer demands, leveraging new technologies, assessing new business models, attracting industry innovators, and repositioning older brands.
