Wa Iria leads Kenya’s team to avocado congress in Colombia
Murang’a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria on Monday met World Avocado Congress steering committee in Colombia’s capital Medellin ahead of the main event which is aimed at championing for a global market for the produce.
The governor was, together with officials of the Avocado Society of Kenya, invited to attend the global congress.
The delegation is expected to learn about new and more productive markets, accessing the most recent research and academic papers from international studies and use the opportunity as a networking platform since they will be meeting other key players in the avocado sector.
The congress will host workshops and presentations of scientific research that promotes innovative methods for specialised audiences.
It is normally hosted by an avocado-growing country every four years.
