Robert Berlin, head of agriservices, digital delivery and country programmes at the Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture, attended the event as the chief guest. Representatives from the private sector, including e-commerce, agro-input, agro processing and large conglomerates, as well as the development sector were participated in the discussion and spoke about ways to consolidate fragmented digital initiatives in agriculture in Bangladesh. The experts strongly suggested that establishing a coherent digital strategy in agro-business models as well as widespread collaboration between agri-technology companies, e-commerce, and input-output companies and active governance will be crucial in ensuring a winning model for the ecosystem and achieve commercial viability.
