Ethiopia is partaking in the five-day annual Gulfood Fair in Dubai that is held for the 26th time this year.
Attesting the ever-increasing participation of Ethiopian businesses in the forum, this year, 79 Ethiopian private businesses are taking part in showcasing their agricultural and processed agricultural products.
The Ethiopian business delegation is led by State Minister of the Ministry of Trade and Industry, H.E. Ambassador Misganu Arga.
Ethiopia’s pavilion was officially opened in the presence of Ambassador Mesganu Arga and FDRE Consul General in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, H.E. Ambassador Jerusalem Amdemariam, as well as officials and exhibitors from other public and private sector associations.
The Gulfood Fair is an international platform where exhibitors showcase their products and look for market opportunities in the Middle East, particularly in the United Arab Emirates.
The Fair hosts more than 5000 exhibitors and expects to draw 90 thousand professional visitors from diverse agro-processing industries while register more than $85 million in trade deals as observed in previous years.
