Sector: Agriculture Industry
Project manager: Ministry of Industry
Estimated cost (USD): USD 160 million
Estimated cost (FCFA): FCFA 80 billion
Niger produces sugar cane but does not have a sugar manufacturing plant. To meet strong national demand, the Niger State massively imports sugar from neighbouring countries. Therefore, this project is part of the Niger policy for agricultural product improvement through sugar cane refining, to meet national and international demands and produce energy from waste.
- Production of by-products for export;
- Export sugar on an international and sub-regional level;
- Massive reduction of dependency on foreign supplies;
- Improve the rural electrification rate.
