Smart Policies and Practices for Shared Prosperity

There is increasing recognition by government and development agencies that the private sector is an essential element of sustainable development.  Economists project the need for hundreds of billions of dollars to be invested in the agriculture and food sectors to feed a rapidly growing population.  Private companies provide the inputs, equipment, processing and storage facilities and food packaging and distribution capabilities required to meet the increasing demand for food.  ACI provides a set of services to private companies expanding operations in key target countries.
