Reinforce the synergy of the actors
Kossi Djifa Hounkanli intends to put his many years of responsible for planning and monitoring evaluation on projects to develop the agricultural potential of the region.

"As far processing is concerned, at least 60% of the companies are in the maritime region, all of these processing units are just pulling the production and are safe markets for producers, and it is very important to get more closer to these micro companies to see how they manage to struggle in the market facing the persistent competition", he says.
He promises to establish a link between producers and these microenterprises to create a relationship that will facilitate the search for markets for producers but also the guarantee of the raw material for these companies.
"We especially invite them to develop internal communication strategies apart from fairs, to work on the quality of their products", he suggests. The commitment of the youth in the agricultural sector is for him, an additional source of motivation to succeed his mission.
