                          The Important Role of Agro-Investments

    Africa has a high potential in order to help fight the global food crisis. Many African countries
    comprise arable land and climate conditions favourable for growing agricultural products.
    Furthermore, approximately two third of the continent’s population is employed in the
    agriculture sector. Although conditions are in favour of high rates of food production Africa is
    still the biggest receiver of International Food Aid.

    The rising need for food imports comes at a time when the exportable agricultural surplus
    worldwide has declined, as food markets are tight and stockpiles declining. Many exporter
    countries like India and Vietnam have implemented export restrictions in order to supply food
    to their domestic markets. Thus, many countries are looking for investment opportunities in
    the agriculture sector.

    Due to the geographical and geological conditions, the African continent is a perfect partner
    in that area. Most African countries have a high potential to increase agricultural production
    and export large scales of agricultural products. But they lack the expertise and technology to
    effectively use these favourable conditions in order to secure the global food production.

    During the General Assembly of the UN on 24 September 2008 in New York, USA and the
    UN Conference on Financing for Development in Doha, Qatar (29 November to 2 December
    2008) many African Heads of State pointed out that there is the need to boost agricultural
    production in order to replace food aid, which will help fight the global food crisis.

    In order to do so, investments in the area of innovative methods and technologies as well as
    agriculture equipment are vital. The Africa-Arab Agro-Investment Summit addresses this by
    its vital goals, such as facilitating partnerships in the margin of agriculture projects and
    supporting research & development in order to apply new technologies for a more effective
    and sustainable food production.

    Thus, the people of Africa will benefit from this ground-breaking event toward agro-
    investments facilitating World food security and replacing international food aid.

                                Draft Conference Prospectus

    Who is organising the 1st Africa-Aran Agro-Investment Summit?
    The event will be hosted by the Government of Zanzibar led by H.E. Dr. Amani Abeid
    Karume, President of Zanzibar. The event is organised by Europe SADC States Bridge
    (ESSB). The ESSB has kindly requested H.M. King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa of the Kingdom
    of Bahrain to present his Kingdom as the partner country in the margin of the Summit. Due to
    their expertise and resources, the ESSB has kindly approached the Islamic Development
    Bank and the African Development Bank to cooperate in organising this summit as equal
    partners. This partnership facilitates a sound organisation from both regions.

    Who will attend?
    In total 250 participants are expected comprised of 5 target groups:
           Investors from the Arab World (Mainly GCC countries) and Development Funds &
            Institutions (Kuwait Fund, SFD, World Bank etc.), global financiers, business leaders,
            and representatives from investment promotion agencies
           African land owners (Small Farmers, Agriculture Member Organisations etc.)
           Policy Makers (Heads of State, Ministers etc.)
           Agri-Business Companies (Agro-Machineries, Fertilisers, Seeds etc.)
           Academia (Research Institutes, Universities, etc.)

    How will the agenda be developed?
    The ESSB will develop the detailed agenda with the cooperation partners following input
    from local and international private sector leaders, and from the Arabic World seeking
    investment opportunities in the agriculture sector in Africa. The Forum complements
    important recent initiatives within the SADC and East African countries to strengthen
    business government working relationships (Public Private Partnership). It will involve
    international private sector representatives and investors in order to unleash the potential of
    African countries to engage in agricultural exports facilitating a sustainable economic growth.

    What are the specific goals of the Summit?
    The focus of the 1st Africa-Arab Agro-Investment Summit will be on investment in agriculture
    to respond to rising global food prices drawing on the untapped potential in Africa. Agriculture
    is the mainstay of Africa, employing two-thirds of the continent's 920 million people in a
    subsistence capacity. The summit will facilitate bilateral meetings between the heads of state
    in order to support a dialogue on establishing a strategy on agro-investments of Arab
    countries to Africa. The summit will draw on agricultural initiatives between the public
    and private sector and on paths to finance for development.

    What will be the main outcome of the Summit?
       Bilateral agro-investment strategy on governmental stage within both regions
       New business relationships and business partners between both regions
       Funding for projects in the agricultural sector
       Increased awareness of importance to invest in agricultural sector
       The Zanzibar Declaration

                                     Issues to be addressed

       President Pedro Rodrigues Verona Pires of Cape Verde underlined during the General
     Assembly of the UN on 24 September 2008 the need to boost agricultural production. “The
    food crisis has endangered hundreds of millions of people,” he told the Assembly. “It is clear
       that urgent action is needed to guarantee greater agricultural production able to satisfy
     present and future needs. This goal requires the promotion of agricultural policies that are
        consistent with the needs of the situation, the participation of rich and technologically
           advanced states as well as the technical support of international organizations.”


    Issue 1: Implications of projected food price inflation and global population growth
    Besides the dominant rent inflation, food inflation has been put in the spotlight in the wake of
    global food price hikes. Food price inflation constitutes a major strategic challenge for the
    GCC countries (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E.) as they have rapidly
    growing populations but a declining agriculture due to lack of water and arable land. Food
    inflation can also be the source of significant social unrest, as it hits lower income groups
    especially hard because they have to spend a relatively high share of their disposable
    income on food. The GCC countries have already started envisaging agricultural investment
    in Africa as well as Asia. The potential for African countries to engage in agricultural exports
    can be clearly identified. Many African countries have arable land as well as internal fresh
    water resources or sufficient rain falls. Still the export potential is strongly linked to Foreign
    Direct Investments to the agricultural sector. A considerable amount of new food production
    would be demanded by a growing population in Africa and agricultural production would need
    to be increased beyond the growth of the population. Furthermore, agriculture in Africa is still
    dominated by small plot family farms which often produce for subsistence or local markets
    and do not have access to larger national or international markets. Thus, the crucial factor is
    to improve productivity. Considerable productivity gains could be expected by larger plots
    and the advent of irrigation and mechanisation, which can be reached through Foreign Direct
    Investments to the African agriculture sector.


    Issue 2: Context of Agricultural Trade with Arab Countries & Trade and Movement of
    Agricultural Goods and Services
    Review of current cooperative programmes carried out between Africa and Arabic
    agricultural enterprises in agricultural investment and trade. The session will look at business
    initiatives to work with governments to set up improved customs facilitation and other trade
    related procedures to liberalise movement of goods, services and labour, as well as phasing
    in of harmonised investment, trade and tariff regimes.


    Issue 3: Africa’s Agricultural Financing and Investment Policies
    African delegates will make a briefing on Africa's agricultural financing and investment,
    policies, as well as the development trend in the future. Foreign delegates are expected to
    introduce the international agricultural investment projects and proposals as well as relevant
    policies.

                                      Issues to be addressed

    Issue 4: Enabling Environments for Agribusiness and Agro-Industries Development in
    Africa & Accelerating Agriculture Development
    The Summit will examine priorities in three areas: transport and trade corridors (road, rail,
    and air), new agricultural technologies and growth of agricultural productivity. The needs are
    clear, the capacity to deliver is available, and there is a consensus that there is a ready
    supply of available investment capital. So how can the implementation be accelerated? The
    summit will explore new mechanisms at national and regional level to strengthen the capacity
    to speed up delivery of public private partnerships (PPPs), and gear up for cross border
    investments in the agriculture sector.


    Issue 5: Access to Finance for Development
    The conference will examine new approaches to new lending policies and instruments for the
    SMME and SME sector, promoting access to finance for empowerment of rural
    entrepreneurs and to improve agricultural production and agro-industry. Distinct
    Development Banks will outline their financing strategy and goals for Agro-Investments to
    Africa. Growing numbers of private business people are looking for projects they can support
    or invest in. Thus, they constantly look for summits and congresses with regard to investment
    opportunities. As a consequence, one important goal of this summit is to bring them together
    with various project owners.


    Issue 6: Bilateral Meetings
    Arab and foreign investors as well as agricultural enterprises planning to make agricultural
    investment in Africa are invited to the summit in order to discuss investment and business
    opportunities on a bilateral level. Furthermore, a fair for recommended agricultural projects
    will be held in order to facilitate the exchange for agricultural investment and cooperation
    proposals between the investment institutions, investors, investment promotion agencies as
    well as agricultural enterprises and agricultural development institutions. Additionally, a round
    table session for heads of state as well as ministers of agriculture will facilitate bilateral talks
    between both regions.


    Issue 7: Concrete Cooperation Opportunities in the Agriculture Sector
    The 1st Africa-Arab Agro-Investment Summit applies a holistic approach to the topic of agro-
    investments in order to increase the productivity in this sector. The goal is to secure the
    sustainability for this ground-breaking event. Thus, after the Summit several projects and
    joint ventures should be pursued between Africa and the Arab World. To facilitate this, the
    ESSB has requested the African governments to present tangible projects in the fields of:

    1.   Land leasing regulations
    2.   Land available for investment
    3.   Climatic condition prevailing to land in question
    4.   Every country will bring at least commercial African farmers looking for joint ventures with
         the Arab World

Many African countries comprise arable land and climate conditions favourable for growing agricultural products. Furthermore, approximately two third of the continent’s population is employed in the agriculture sector. Although conditions are in favour of high rates of food production Africa is still the biggest receiver of International Food Aid. The rising need for food imports comes at a time when the exportable agricultural surplus worldwide has declined, as food markets are tight and stockpiles declining. Many exporter countries like India and Vietnam have implemented export restrictions in order to supply food to their domestic markets. Thus, many countries are looking for investment opportunities in the agriculture sector. Due to the geographical and geological conditions, the African continent is a perfect partner in that area. Most African countries have a high potential to increase agricultural production and export large scales of agricultural products. But they lack the expertise and technology to effectively use these favourable conditions in order to secure the global food production. During the General Assembly of the UN on 24 September 2008 in New York, USA and the UN Conference on Financing for Development in Doha, Qatar (29 November to 2 December 2008) many African Heads of State pointed out that there is the need to boost agricultural production in order to replace food aid, which will help fight the global food crisis. In order to do so, investments in the area of innovative methods and technologies as well as agriculture equipment are vital. The Africa-Arab Agro-Investment Summit addresses this by its vital goals, such as facilitating partnerships in the margin of agriculture projects and supporting research & development in order to apply new technologies for a more effective and sustainable food production. Thus, the people of Africa will benefit from this ground-breaking event toward agro- investments facilitating World food security and replacing international food aid. www.essb.de 3 of 11

Europe SADC States Bridge ESSB Swabury KG Africa-Arab Agro-Investment Summit 2009 Tel: 030 – 397 88 185 Fax: 030 – 397 88 225 Mail: a.swabury@essb.de Draft Conference Prospectus Who is organising the 1st Africa-Aran Agro-Investment Summit? The event will be hosted by the Government of Zanzibar led by H.E. Dr. Amani Abeid Karume, President of Zanzibar. The event is organised by Europe SADC States Bridge (ESSB). The ESSB has kindly requested H.M. King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa of the Kingdom of Bahrain to present his Kingdom as the partner country in the margin of the Summit. Due to their expertise and resources, the ESSB has kindly approached the Islamic Development Bank and the African Development Bank to cooperate in organising this summit as equal partners. This partnership facilitates a sound organisation from both regions. Who will attend? In total 250 participants are expected comprised of 5 target groups:  Investors from the Arab World (Mainly GCC countries) and Development Funds & Institutions (Kuwait Fund, SFD, World Bank etc.), global financiers, business leaders, and representatives from investment promotion agencies  African land owners (Small Farmers, Agriculture Member Organisations etc.)  Policy Makers (Heads of State, Ministers etc.)  Agri-Business Companies (Agro-Machineries, Fertilisers, Seeds etc.)  Academia (Research Institutes, Universities, etc.) How will the agenda be developed? The ESSB will develop the detailed agenda with the cooperation partners following input from local and international private sector leaders, and from the Arabic World seeking investment opportunities in the agriculture sector in Africa. The Forum complements important recent initiatives within the SADC and East African countries to strengthen business government working relationships (Public Private Partnership). It will involve international private sector representatives and investors in order to unleash the potential of African countries to engage in agricultural exports facilitating a sustainable economic growth. What are the specific goals of the Summit? The focus of the 1st Africa-Arab Agro-Investment Summit will be on investment in agriculture to respond to rising global food prices drawing on the untapped potential in Africa. Agriculture is the mainstay of Africa, employing two-thirds of the continent's 920 million people in a subsistence capacity. The summit will facilitate bilateral meetings between the heads of state in order to support a dialogue on establishing a strategy on agro-investments of Arab countries to Africa. The summit will draw on agricultural initiatives between the public and private sector and on paths to finance for development. What will be the main outcome of the Summit?  Bilateral agro-investment strategy on governmental stage within both regions  New business relationships and business partners between both regions  Funding for projects in the agricultural sector  Increased awareness of importance to invest in agricultural sector  The Zanzibar Declaration www.essb.de 4 of 11

Europe SADC States Bridge ESSB Swabury KG Africa-Arab Agro-Investment Summit 2009 Tel: 030 – 397 88 185 Fax: 030 – 397 88 225 Mail: a.swabury@essb.de Issues to be addressed President Pedro Rodrigues Verona Pires of Cape Verde underlined during the General Assembly of the UN on 24 September 2008 the need to boost agricultural production. “The food crisis has endangered hundreds of millions of people,” he told the Assembly. “It is clear that urgent action is needed to guarantee greater agricultural production able to satisfy present and future needs. This goal requires the promotion of agricultural policies that are consistent with the needs of the situation, the participation of rich and technologically advanced states as well as the technical support of international organizations.” Issue 1: Implications of projected food price inflation and global population growth Besides the dominant rent inflation, food inflation has been put in the spotlight in the wake of global food price hikes. Food price inflation constitutes a major strategic challenge for the GCC countries (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E.) as they have rapidly growing populations but a declining agriculture due to lack of water and arable land. Food inflation can also be the source of significant social unrest, as it hits lower income groups especially hard because they have to spend a relatively high share of their disposable income on food. The GCC countries have already started envisaging agricultural investment in Africa as well as Asia. The potential for African countries to engage in agricultural exports can be clearly identified. Many African countries have arable land as well as internal fresh water resources or sufficient rain falls. Still the export potential is strongly linked to Foreign Direct Investments to the agricultural sector. A considerable amount of new food production would be demanded by a growing population in Africa and agricultural production would need to be increased beyond the growth of the population. Furthermore, agriculture in Africa is still dominated by small plot family farms which often produce for subsistence or local markets and do not have access to larger national or international markets. Thus, the crucial factor is to improve productivity. Considerable productivity gains could be expected by larger plots and the advent of irrigation and mechanisation, which can be reached through Foreign Direct Investments to the African agriculture sector. Issue 2: Context of Agricultural Trade with Arab Countries & Trade and Movement of Agricultural Goods and Services Review of current cooperative programmes carried out between Africa and Arabic agricultural enterprises in agricultural investment and trade. The session will look at business initiatives to work with governments to set up improved customs facilitation and other trade related procedures to liberalise movement of goods, services and labour, as well as phasing in of harmonised investment, trade and tariff regimes. Issue 3: Africa’s Agricultural Financing and Investment Policies African delegates will make a briefing on Africa's agricultural financing and investment, policies, as well as the development trend in the future. Foreign delegates are expected to introduce the international agricultural investment projects and proposals as well as relevant policies. www.essb.de 5 of 11

The needs are clear, the capacity to deliver is available, and there is a consensus that there is a ready supply of available investment capital. So how can the implementation be accelerated? The summit will explore new mechanisms at national and regional level to strengthen the capacity to speed up delivery of public private partnerships (PPPs), and gear up for cross border investments in the agriculture sector. Issue 5: Access to Finance for Development The conference will examine new approaches to new lending policies and instruments for the SMME and SME sector, promoting access to finance for empowerment of rural entrepreneurs and to improve agricultural production and agro-industry. Distinct Development Banks will outline their financing strategy and goals for Agro-Investments to Africa. Growing numbers of private business people are looking for projects they can support or invest in. Thus, they constantly look for summits and congresses with regard to investment opportunities. As a consequence, one important goal of this summit is to bring them together with various project owners. Issue 6: Bilateral Meetings Arab and foreign investors as well as agricultural enterprises planning to make agricultural investment in Africa are invited to the summit in order to discuss investment and business opportunities on a bilateral level. Furthermore, a fair for recommended agricultural projects will be held in order to facilitate the exchange for agricultural investment and cooperation proposals between the investment institutions, investors, investment promotion agencies as well as agricultural enterprises and agricultural development institutions. Additionally, a round table session for heads of state as well as ministers of agriculture will facilitate bilateral talks between both regions. Issue 7: Concrete Cooperation Opportunities in the Agriculture Sector The 1st Africa-Arab Agro-Investment Summit applies a holistic approach to the topic of agro- investments in order to increase the productivity in this sector. The goal is to secure the sustainability for this ground-breaking event. Thus, after the Summit several projects and joint ventures should be pursued between Africa and the Arab World. To facilitate this, the ESSB has requested the African governments to present tangible projects in the fields of: 1. Land leasing regulations 2. Land available for investment 3. Climatic condition prevailing to land in question 4. Every country will bring at least commercial African farmers looking for joint ventures with the Arab World www.essb.de 6 of 11
