Saudi Agriculture Exhibition 2018 a success

Saudi Minister of Environment, Water and Agriculture, Abdul Rahman Al-Fadli inaugurated the Saudi Agriculture Exhibition 2018 on Oct. 8 at the Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center.
The three-day event, which is organized by the Riyadh Exhibitions Company, saw the participation of global leaders coming from more than 33 countries to explore investment opportunities within the country’s agricultural sector. Al-Fadli, along with several senior officials, toured the exhibition and was briefed on the latest technologies, machines, solutions and services by local and international exhibitors.
The event aims to serve as a strategic platform to promote the agricultural sector to enhance sustainable agriculture and rural area development.
Now in its 37th year, the Saudi Agriculture Exhibition continues to attract international and regional visitors looking to explore emerging trends and developments in the Saudi agricultural sector, with unlimited government support to stimulate agricultural investment.
During its participation in this year’s show, the National Center for Palm and Dates revealed that it has now reached over 4,000 local and around 1,400 international outlets. The announcement complements their continuing efforts to become a premier exporter of dates through a reliable trademark known for its quality and safety — facilitating the marketing and e-marketing of Saudi dates on both the local and global fronts.
Mohammad Al-Sheikh, head of marketing, Riyadh Exhibitions Company, praised the “unlimited support of the Saudi government for the success of the exhibition.”
“This year’s edition has attracted thousands of visitors from inside and outside the Kingdom to learn about new developments within the local agricultural sector, which has promising prospects and is expected to help accelerate the growth of livestock, fisheries and agriculture sectors, in line with the ‘Sustainable Agricultural Rural Area Development Program,’” he said.
