In a bid to diversify its economy, the Sultanate of Oman is strongly focused on expanding its non-oil sectors, especially agriculture and fisheries.
Oman has ambitious plans to ramp up production and capabilities in the agriculture and fisheries sector to become a sustainable and strong contributor to economic growth. In fact, the Sultanate’s Fisheries and Aquaculture Vision 2040 set a target of over 220,000 tons of fish production per year, contributing $500 – 900 million to the economy.
In support of these vital sectors, the government is offering numerous projects and investment opportunities for private investors and industry specialists, including $801.5 million in Fisheries and $320.5 million in agriculture.
In recognition of the country’s growing business potential, IFP Emirates (International Fairs and Promotions) and Al Nimr Expo are organizing Oman AgroFood, under the patronage of the Ministry of Agriculture & Fisheries Wealth, from 14 to 16 December 2020 at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Center.
This key annual gathering will bring together government decision-makers, international thought-leaders, regional trailblazers and innovative technology and solution providers to transform the sector and make the Sultanate’s ambitious vision a reality.
Oman AgroFood is designed to be a comprehensive platform that provides an access point to arising investment opportunities and new projects in crop and animal farming and optimizes international trade relations. It is an ideal destination to showcase the latest innovations and solutions for sustainable farming and to foster successful partnerships with local and regional entities.
A key feature of Oman AgroFood is the designated B2B Matchmaking Program. This complimentary service is a highly effective tool, designed to ensure exhibitors and visitors meet the right partners, making way for new partnerships. The user-friendly interface allows for meetings to be scheduled with selected companies; the meetings can either take place at the designated B2B area or at the exhibitor’s stand.
