Danish Delegation on Sustainable Food & Agriculture to Dhaka, Bangladesh, 5-8 June 2023

New Strategic Sector Cooperation within Agriculture and food to be initiated in Q1 2023 in Bangladesh

The Embassy of Denmark in Dhaka and the Danish Agriculture & Food Council (DAFC) invite you to participate in an export delegation to Bangladesh focusing on sustainable food and agriculture. In 2023, Denmark will initiate a new Strategic Sector Cooperation in Bangladesh with a new counsellor for agriculture and food to be placed out of the Embassy of Denmark in Dhaka. 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 approximately 175 million people and a 10.5% annual growth in the country’s middle & affluent class, Bangladesh is well positioned to modernize its agriculture and food production to be safe, competitive, and green while combating food loss. Coupled with sector-specific incentives, these political ambitions for the agriculture and food sector provide great opportunities for Danish companies in the Bangladesh market.

  • Breeding and genetics.
