Wanyama says the expo will focus on teaching Ugandans how to make money from agriculture.
According to the CEO, who made the remarks during a meeting between exhibitors and expo officials at Vision Group offices in Kampala on Wednesday (February 8), they want people to make money, get better and improve their lives through agriculture.
“We want people to make money, get better, and improve their lives through agriculture,” Wanyama said.
