European Union Delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS  has launched agribusiness platform to reduce food insecurity and poverty as well as attain sustainable development in Nigeria.

The digital agricultural platform provides digital marketing, trading or investment space for commercial and/or transactional activities, interaction, communications, integration and cooperation in the agri-food system and agro-industry between Nigerian and European SMEs, It will also increase private investments in the agribusiness sector.

Deputy Director General of Directorate of International Partnerships (INTPA) at EU Commission,  Myriam Ferran, said the idea stems from commitments of the November 2020 EU-Nigeria Ministerial Dialogue.  In consultation with Nigeria, it was decided that an EU-Nigeria agri-business platform would promote trade and attract responsible investment, and foster business linkages, particularly for SMEs.
