UQ welcomes Africa's emerging leaders in agriculture

6 Aug 2018

Sixty emerging leaders from African agricultural industries are in Queensland for an intensive development program to help them tackle challenges of sustainable economic development in their own countries.

The University of Queensland has welcomed participants of the Australia Awards Program, who will spend six weeks completing short courses on agribusiness, irrigation and water resource management.

The Australia Awards are funded by the Australian Government and managed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
