Belarus continues preparations for the international exposition of food industry Gulfood-2017, which is to be held in Dubai.
It is the largest specialized forum in the Persian Gulf region,
which attracts food and drink manufacturers, suppliers and restaurateurs from all over the world. Countries of this region buy more than 90 % of their food supplies from abroad, and it is a good possibility for Belarusian manufacturers to introduce their products to Middle East buyers, to make contracts and to adjust the supply situation.
Gulfood returns for its 22nd edition on February 26, 2017.
Alexei Bogdanov, Head of the Central Office for Foreign Economic Activities of the Belarusian Agriculture and Food Ministry:
A lot of representatives of the African continent visit this exposition, buyers from Southeast Asian countries and from the Persian Gulf also come here, and that's why Belarus hopes to do its best at the forum.
Some 100 square meters of space have been given to Belarus right in the center of the exhibition,
where dairy, poultry and Belarusian beef producers will be taking part. It is one of the reasons why further export diversification connections are to be continued into this region.
More than 4.500 companies from 120 countries took part in this exhibition in 2016, and more than 85 thousand people visited it.
