The AGRICULTURE SECTOR IN AFRICA is still lacking in agricultural input commodities. Only five states (i.e. South Africa, Malawi, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Egypt) have seed industries which provide about twenty per cent of the continent’s requirements. Eighty-five per cent of the fertilizer requirement is imported with South Africa and Morocco being the major producers. However, improvements are imminent, with Ethiopia building five fertilizer plants and Nigeria reopening a urea plant for supply to the West African region.
The PETROLEUM AGENCY OF SOUTH AFRICA (PASA) is already in discussion with its Namibian equivalent regarding SOUTHERN AFRICAN OFFSHORE OIL AND GAS CONCESSIONS and will soon be liaising with the relevant Mozambican authorities.
