There will also be social networking cocktails on the first and last day of the event.  The fertilizer sub-sector in Africa has been recognized as an important catalyst for the "green revolution" in Africa.  The sector is currently experiencing emerging challenges and opportunities. Some of these include the high international/local fertilizer prices, fertilizer price fluctuations, the continued subsidy on farm inputs to targeted resource poor and vulnerable small scale farmers, the  emerging Private-Public Partnership in credit and  local / international supply chain constrains and insurance provision in the promotion of farm inputs.

The purpose of Fertilizer Trade Africa 2011 is to provide a platform for senior executives from fertilizer  producing companies, exporters, importers, traders, shipping lines, terminal and storage facility operators, banks and finance houses, government officials, large agri-businesses to meet in one place to enhance existing business relationships while establishing new contacts in the region.

Fertilizer Trade Africa 2011 is being held in Nairobi, Kenya - in Eastern Africa,  a region which is dependant on fertilizer imports due to the fact that there is no significant local  production to meet demand.
