Congo's maiden agro-industrial park isn't perfect, but it isn't a failure (DEVEX)
- Impact Area
Devex published an op-ed by IFPRI Senior Research Fellow John Ulimwengu, who detailed Congo’s move towards structural transformation in the agricultural sector with the establishment of their first special economic zone in Bukanga Lonzo. Created to boost production, encourage private and foreign capital investments, and increase agricultural exports, the agrobusiness park is home to tremendous production potential so long as it has the proper funding, governance, and management.
