Pavel Shishkin, CEO of Compas says: “Russia needs new technologies to improve its agriculture, our alliance with AGQ Labs allows us to take this process a step further. We hope this will make us grow together in a market as big and powerful as the Russian”.
Expanding services in Africa
Although in Africa AGQ Labs already had presence, in the north in Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt, and in the South in South Africa, now the expansion in West Africa continues with the signing of a licensing contract in Senegal with Tropisen.
This contract opens the doors to other countries in the area where Tropisen carries out its activities. These countries are Guinea Bissau, The Gambia, Guinea Konakri, Mali and other options in Ghana, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast and Nigeria.
