Premier to meet with stakeholders in Western Cape agricultural sector ahead of visit to the United States
On Tuesday, 06 June 2023, Premier Alan Winde will engage with stakeholders in the province’s agricultural industry to understand the challenges that they are facing and the economic and job creation benefits that the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) has bought them. This meeting takes place ahead of his visit to the United States where he will be speaking with key stakeholders to secure its renewal and expand future trade and investment opportunities for the Western Cape.
“Our agriculture and the agri-processing sectors were remarkably resilient during the Covid-19 pandemic, a hallmark of an industry that for generations has withstood considerable challenges. I want to hear from them first-hand what we as the Western Cape Government can do to help them here and abroad,” said Premier Winde.
