They will be served by exporters, seed companies, larger trade associations and other service providers, and Regional Agribusiness Enterprises (RAEs) at the Governorate level. These professionally managed, for-profit enterprises will facilitate training, technical assistance, processing facilities, and consolidating and marketing services to FAs and others.
