August 21, 2012 Editor 0
The Rockefeller Foundation, on Wednesday, announced its plans to partner with the Goodluck Jonathan led administration on its Agriculture Transformation Agenda.
Judith Rodin, the Foundation’s president, said the initiative was born out of the notion that the country could emerge the agricultural hub of the continent if the transformation agenda succeeded.
Rodin promised that the Foundation would assist government to boost productivity in the sector by focusing on the agriculture value chain.
