Heritage Bank, Sumitomo Corporation convene strategic Agribusiness meeting
FOLLOWING the nation’s plans to be a catalyst for an agricultural revolution, Heritage Bank Plc is forming alliance to further create formidable partnership arrangements with Sumitomo Corporation that will lead to impactful agribusiness within the segments of the agricultural value chain.
As it stands, food production remains a significant challenge all over the world, and it is against this backdrop that the bank is seeking out like minds to add real value to this most important sector.
This relationship that is focused on mechanisation and agribusiness will complement the efforts of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) to fast track development of the agricultural sector and enhance national food security.
