AGCO Corporation is organizing its second Africa Summit on January 21, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. The summit unites leading international experts to discuss solutions for the development of African Agriculture. Africa has 60% of the world’s arable but uncultivated land. The goal is to provide food for everyone in an ecologically sustainable manner while at the same time promoting the growth.
The AGCO Africa Ambassador video contest is announced for the second time to find someone who represents the continent Africa in all of its facets during several corporate events. The winner will become the AGCO Africa Ambassador 2013 and will be part of the AGCO Africa Summit 2013. Other than that, the Ambassador receives a $10,000.00 cash award and gets all necessary traveling expenses covered.
