COMESA Vision and Strategy for BABA
African agriculture and rural sectors have always suffered from neglect and underinvestment over a long period of time and a very small amount of official investment assistance goes to the rural areas. Harnessing this BABA/COMESA partnership will potentially contribute to the development, which will require success in two important areas: improving smallholder competitiveness, in high and medium areas, where returns to investment are highest, giving more people access to high quality packaged food products. Value addition means: better return and quality of life for the people producing the food products.
• "Be fully integrated, internationally competitive regional economic community, with high standards of living for all its people ready to merge into an African Economic Community"
• Establish groundbreaking BABA/COMESA Centre's of Excellence, which has the most dynamic and refreshing approach for all those involved in the COMESA Member States
• Create state of the art Centre's of Excellence, where all aspects of packaging can be taught
• Raise the profile of African packaging technology around the world
