The event opened with a rich three-day programme of hands-on workshops and a range of meetings,
covering areas that include building a successful agribusiness company, inclusive value chain development, ICTs for fisheries, policy advocacy for Caribbean and Pacific farmers' leaders, access to finance, strengthening the link between agriculture and nutrition and successful initiatives to counter climate change. Participants are being invited to attend training sessions in social media and Web 2.0 tools and a team of young ACP social media reporters will be covering exchanges throughout the Forum.

5 - 6 November 2015. The 2nd Caribbean Agribusiness Forum – Strengthening the agri-food sector and expanding markets, will explore the main drivers of agribusiness development and highlight success stories.
