Agriculture in Chad
Chad, a political stable and oil rich country that is historically oriented toward agriculture, livestock breeding and even fishing. Even today, 80% of working population is directly affected by the primary sector, essentially by food production. Chad has today nearly 40 million hectares of arable land. Less than 10% of them are grown annually.
During his last election, the head of state His Excellency Mr. President Idriss Déby Itno has placed his last mandate under the sign of agriculture and youth development. Indeed, His country regularly suffers from food crises, and presents a cereal deficit of 500 000 tons. 20% of the population is in a situation of food insecurity. The development of this sector of activity is then a crucial aspect for Chad. Mechanization and production optimization, irrigation and processing are key sectors that offer significant business opportunities with foreign companies.

The mission & Program
In the presence of politicians, private sector representatives and international organizations, conferences and round tables will be organized. Several themes will be addressed in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. They will enable the delegation from the Netherlands to meet the set of actors of Chadian agricultural sector. You will benefit from interventions of politicians, economists, businessmen and personalities who have already managed to settle their presence in African continent, or in Chad. This business trip will allow you to understand Chadian business environment, it will allow you to sign business agreements both public and private, or to settle the foundations for a future partnership.
As organizers of this mission, we are aware that Chad is a challenging environment for foreign companies, due to its use of different languages and its geographical landlocked position. However, we recognize that Chad offers great opportunities in the agronomic sector and needs foreign trade and investment, in order to develop these sectors and, in a general sense, to develop itself as country.
This mission aims to promote mutually beneficial partnerships between Dutch and Chadian public and private sectors, and to connect Dutch (or European) and African companies to their Chadian counterparts. Thus, the program will be tailored to be adapted to the participants’ goals.
