Meet the Farmers Conference aims to promote a sustainable future as regards food, trade and technology by creating a thriving environment to breed synergy between African farmers and off-takers in the GCC. Africa is rich with vast arable land for food production but is incapacitated by an unstable economy. UAE on the other hand is forced to rely on importation to feed their population.
For the first time ever, farmers, producers, stakeholders and investors in Africa’s agribusiness can connect to one of the world’s most stable economies, the UAE. It is the perfect opportunity to learn, network and establish a strong presence in the agriculture ecosystem.
Exhibiting farmers can attract foreign direct investors and position their brand on a global platform for potential business partnerships. This annual event offers you the perfect opportunity to learn, network, and build strategic partnerships that will develop and strengthen your brand in the agro sector.
