COTONOU, Benin, July 31, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- Rice has become the most rapidly growing food source across Africa. The critical challenge facing the African rice sector today is to enhance its performance in production, processing and marketing, which will lead to the development of competitive and equitable rice value chains, reduction of imports and increase of regional trade.

The 3rd Africa Rice Congress (ARC2013) will provide opportunity to participants to discuss issues relating to rice science and technology, institutional innovations, policies and key investments needed to significantly increase rice production, processing and marketing in Africa.

Watch Africa's rice stakeholders and partners speak about their expectations for the Congress:

The ARC2013 Organizing Committee wishes to take this opportunity to convey its profound gratitude to the EARLY SPONSORS and REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS AND EXHIBITORS!

Limited sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are available on a first come first served basis.
