According to a report, strategies for fostering an atmosphere that would encourage investment and innovation in the agriculture industry were deliberated at a significant meeting that took place in Sharjah.
To explore opportunities for cooperation in promoting trade, encouraging investment, and advancing agricultural development to achieve sustainable food security, the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) held discussions with the Arab Authority for Agricultural Investment and Development (AAAID), according to Emirates News Agency, WAM.
Dr Obaid Saif Al Zaabi, the board chairman of the Arab Authority for Agricultural Investment and Development, was greeted by Abdullah Sultan Al Owais, the chairman of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, during the talks at the Chamber’s headquarters.
The goal of the meeting, which included several representatives from both organizations, was to work together to promote Sharjah Chamber members’ businesses, particularly those in the agriculture industry.
Al Owais emphasized that by strengthening ties with AAAID, the SCCI is demonstrating its commitment to supporting the agricultural sector. This will open up investment opportunities, increase the competitiveness of companies operating in the sector, broaden their reach, and increase their contributions to agricultural development.
According to him, the ultimate goal of these initiatives is to support private agricultural investments and agribusiness businesses.
Al Owais also discussed Sharjah’s long history of agricultural development and its current large-scale agricultural projects, citing many programs, events, and projects the Sharjah Chamber has organized to advance the agricultural industry.
These events include the Al Dhaid Dates Festivals and the Al Dhaid Agricultural Exhibition, which directly help small and medium-sized businesses promote sustainable local agricultural production by utilizing sustainability techniques and cutting-edge technology.
