It is my pleasure to welcome you to our 5th Annual Agribusiness & Economic Industry Summit. The Summit will play a key role in shaping the next stage for farmers, stakeholders, decision makers, industry and energy communities worldwide. I am pleased to see the widespread interest and enthusiasm from our partners participating at the Summit in 2019. We have Ministers, Government Officials, delegates from public and private sectors, rural farmers, and business people from around the globe. As many of you know, the Agribusiness Summit is a unique trans-continental platform for dialogue and cooperation between Africa, Caribbean, Americas and other nations. All continents will benefit from strengthening their relationships; especially in the wake of new challenges and exciting opportunities posed by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals. The promotion of agriculture and industrial activity is widely seen as a desirable way to achieve the goal of economic growth and development in Africa and beyond. With micro, small and medium enterprises growing steadily, this progress contributes to the rise of exports and helps achieve the goal of sustainable management. We present this 5th edition of the Agribusiness Summit as a result of the gracious invitation of Honorable leaders from United States, Canada, Central African Republic, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, and the Republic of Haiti. I would like to recognize the unwavering commitment of the U.N Ambassadors of the Steering Committee in preparing for this Summit. Their active leadership through various meetings, research studies and consultations with their counsellors; especially Her Excellency Ambassador Ambroisine Kpongo of the Permanent Mission of Central African to the United Nations and Excelovate Canada, have proven to be very beneficial. In addition, I would like to thank everyone that helped or contributed their time to making this Summit a success. This Summit is dedicated to bringing the global community together to inspire innovation. We hope to leverage technology to strategically grow business and accelerate advancements through partnerships and roadmaps. I am confident these three days will generate new ideas on how agriculture, energy and industry development can contribute to the future of Sustainable Development Goals worldwide. Thank you for your participation and welcome to the
 5th Annual Agribusiness & Economic Industry Summit.

 Respectfully yours,
Jean Jacques Njoh Ewane CEO, Africa Marketing Agency
