and AABS continue to grow and development their joint agribusiness initiative
through the African Agribusiness Network and Consortium. The Agribusiness
Network and Consortium seeks to advance the agricultural development agenda by
addressing the need for business skills and improved leadership and management
practices in the agribusiness sector.
During the AABS annual meeting and conference in Cape Town, an informational
meeting was held for business schools interested in engaging this new
initiative. At this meeting, AABS launched the new AAgri.net
website which will be the online source for program information and
agribusiness resources. AABS is currently focusing on developing a network of
interested schools while it continues to develop the proposal for the next pase
of the project - development and delivery of a new agribusiness training
