President Cyril Ramaphosa will on Monday, 20 August 2018, address the African Farmers Association of South Africa (AFASA) Agribusiness Transformation Conference Gala Dinner.

AFASA is a formal structure that represents the interests of developing farmers countrywide. The association has developed a focus on food security and commercialization as part of enabling black farmers’ participation in the Fourth Industrial Revolution – a fusion of technologies that entail new capabilities for people and machines.

Tomorrow’s Presidential Gala Dinner is part of AFASA’s three-day conference which takes place under the theme “Re-organise, Sustain and Industrialise”.

As part of tomorrow’s proceedings, AFASA will present its Presidential Awards to agri-pioneers and persons who have made outstanding contributions to agricultural transformation and rural development.
