The chief executive officer and country director of Dizengoff West Africa (Nigeria) Limited, Antti Ritvoneni, in this interview with Bukola Idowu talks about the growing rate of interest in agriculture, green house technology as well its prospects.
Challenges faced by Dizengoff as a business
Some of the challenges that we are facing is that the economy is not doing so well. Interest rates are very high and the state of the naira, at least for every company that is importing, is extremely difficult. The positive thing we see is that the government, and also private investors, are now interested more and more in agriculture. So we can clearly see the positive things happening in the agriculture sector.
