Agrikexpo 2017, the sixth edition, of what has become one of Africa's biggest events for Agribusiness development and Conferences, has continued to rise in profile with a growing number of exhibitors and visitors from all over Africa and the world.

Nigeria is the choice destination for Agribusiness development and investments, given the focus of Government on transforming the sector for food security, increased export earnings, job creation, and other economic benefits. Nigeria is the hub of trade in West Africa with the implication that buyers come from nearby countries to procure from Nigeria. In that regard, there is a great need for new investments, partnerships and appropriate technology, including an increase in value chain activities for quick results.

According to Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Professor Audu Ogbeh, "Nigeria will do better with new technology, tractors, harvesters, processing and packaging machinery, irrigation technology, Inputs, etc, commercial-scalecale agricultural productivity. Over 2000 tractors are needed in 2016 for Cultivation at various levels."
