Iran opens Agro-Food expo 2010
Iran has launched its 17th International Agricultural Trade Fair to provide a platform for domestic and foreign businesses to put their products on display.
Participants in the fair said the four-day agricultural show would provide a great opportunity for cooperation and exchange of views among businesspeople around the world.
The fair that kicked off on Sunday in Tehran will also put on display Iran’s agricultural machinery along with livestock and poultry production, organizers said.
Eighty-three exhibitors from 13 countries are participating in the event, which has been approved by the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI).
The trade fair, supported by Iran’s Ministries of Agricultural Jihad and Industries and Mines, is taking place alongside “Iran Food and Hospitality 2010” where more than 350 international exhibitors are presenting their food products and services.
The show is being held as Iranian exporters of agricultural machinery and animal husbandry products have reported great success in their businesses over the past few years, making Iran a key regional marketplace for major international events in the sector.
