New opportunities in Mali

With the Mali President Ibrahim Boubacar Kéita

With the Mali President Ibrahim Boubacar Kéita and ICRISAT’s Director for West & Central Africa, Dr Ramadjita Tabo

I was very privileged to meet with Mali’s President Ibrahim Boubcar Kéita and the Minister for Rural Development Bocary Téréta today.

I was really impressed to hear that the government considers agriculture as its top priority and is allocating a significant 15% of the national budget towards agriculture.

Mali is going to be a very important country to contribute to and may potentially be seen as a huge success story in the future for Africa.  The President specifically mentioned that he wants to create an enabling environment for agro-businesses.
