The three-day-exhibition is being held during the period from Dec.9 to 11 in Cairo, Egypt.

The delegation is being led by Dr Amna Khalifa Al Ali, Board Member of Ajman Chamber, while comprising Abdullah Abdulmohsen Al-Nuaimi - Director of the Relations and Member Support Office and a number of representatives of companies and factories operating in the Emirate of Ajman. Commenting the participation, Dr. Amna stressed its importance in providing a direct channel that enhances the cooperation and partnership between the private institutions in both the UAE and Saudi Arabia on the one hand and Egypt and African countries on the other hand. She also said the exhibition serves as a major gateway to the African continent for being one of the largest international trade fairs specialised in food and agricultural industries allowing the opportunity to explore such a key sector. She further explained that the Ajman Chamber is keen to participate in various international exhibitions and events involving its members to enhance communication with stakeholders from different countries of the world.  “The Chamber further seeks to increase the volume of trade exchange and to promote the local F&B products and packaging services, in addition to opening new markets that increase export opportunities, in order to contribute to the growth and sustainability of companies and factories operating in Ajman,” Dr. Amna said.

During the exhibition, the Ajman Chamber’s pavilion was visited by Juma Mubarak Al Junaibi, UAE Ambassador to Egypt and Permanent Representative to the Arab League, Minister Plenipotentiary Abdullah Al-Shammari, Deputy Saudi Ambassador to Cairo, and Jamal Al-Jarwan, Secretary General of the UAE International Investors Council, where they were briefed about the products showcased by the participating companies under the umbrella of Ajman Chamber.
