(c) Stimulating competitive behaviour and market orientation in other sectors of the economy, most importantly in primary agriculture through interactions with suppliers and clients.
(d) Have a demonstration effect on both domestic and foreign investors associated with a variety of new ways of financing projects in the agribusiness sector.
