Danish Delegation on Sustainable Food & Agriculture to Dhaka, Bangladesh, 8-10 November 2022

The Embassy of Denmark in Dhaka and the Danish Agriculture & Food Council (DAFC) invite you to participate in an export promotion visit to Bangladesh focusing on sustainable food and agriculture.

The delegation is organized to maximize and explore your business opportunities in the growing Bangladesh market. The Government of Bangladesh and the Prime Minister put great emphasis on developing a safe, commercially viable and climate friendly food and agricultural sector as an engine of economic and employment growth. Combined with a large population of approx.175 mil., Bangladesh is well positioned to modernize its agriculture and food production to be safe, competitive, and green while combating food loss. These political ambitions for the agriculture and food sector provide ample opportunities for companies from the Danish food cluster.
