The Agricultural, Bussiness and Entrepreneurship Development Exposition will commence on Tuesday 21 July by 10 am at the council secretariat.

The capacity-building workshop will bring over 200 young Agro Entrepreneurs together in unity and will lay the foundation for the inauguration of the Eti-Iman Multicoperative Society.
