Webinar on business opportunities within agriculture & food in Saudi Arabia and Egypt 15 June

The Danish Agriculture & Food Council invites you to participate in a webinar with a focus on business opportunities within agriculture and food in Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

The two countries are very diverse, but both are leading markets in the MENA-region looking to develop their own agricultural production while at the same time importing food products. This leads to market opportunities across the value chain within areas such as equipment, feed, ingredients, and final food products. 

The Danish ambassadors from Riyadh and Cairo will present the key drivers in both markets within agriculture and food with regards to regulation, investment and political priorities. The Danish Veterinary & Food Administration will outline some of the current main areas of cooperation with Saudi Arabia and Egypt. There will also be a brief introduction to planned business delegations to Saudi Arabia and Egypt during fall co-organized between the Danish Agriculture & Food Council and the Trade Council in the MENA-region. There will be plenty of opportunity for Q&A at the end of the presentations.
