On June 25, six private sponsors of the Africa Agribusiness Academy came together to meet each other and make plans for the coming five years. Piet Heemskerk represented the Wageningen Ambassadors at this kick-off meeting. The sponsors have pledged 2,2 million Euro in donations, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will match these gifts with a maximum of 2 million. In the next five years, members of the academy will invest 4 million Euro themselves. On their website you will find more information on the activities of the academy.
