Stakeholders from Africa and GCC will come together during a 2 day events to network, collaborate, and form potential business partnerships across borders. Most importantly, African farmers, participants, exhibitors, and delegates at this event will be able to leverage the business opportunities available to them in Dubai and other GCC countries.
