Dubai, UAE, 7 March 2018:   His Excellency Sheikh Dr. Majid Sultan Al Qassimi, Acting Assistant Undersecretary for Food Diversity Sector and Director of Animal Development & Health Department at the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, has officially inaugurated AgraME today (6 March), one of the region's key agribusiness, aquaculture and animal health trade events taking place until March 8th at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Over the next three days, AgraME will host over 260 local and international companies from 44 countries. Visitors can join any of the free-to-attend conference streams which cover aquaculture and animal health and a specific stream hosted by the Arab Authority for Agricultural Investment and Development (AAAID) which will cover sector overviews and investment opportunities from across the region.  

Sheikh Dr. Al Qassimi, who also opened the day one aquaculture conference, commented: “As you know the demand for food is continually increasing due to population growth, especially in the Middle East and Africa, and we require innovative solutions to meet the demand. The UAE works as a hub by connecting the minds of people from developed and developing countries to take action to overcome these shared challenges.

“AgraME is the perfect example for how the UAE has been connecting people to meet the continuous demand for new products and technologies that will help us achieve this sustainability. Due to its success, it is now one of the longest running exhibitions in the Middle East covering the four key sectors of Agriculture, Animal Health, Crop Farming and Aquaculture. The exhibition has a great importance in relation to food security, overcoming climate change impact and our over exploited natural resources.”

AgraME is bringing together several industry-leading companies such as Al Dahra Holdings, Jeenan, Jain Irrigation, Agthia and Massey Ferguson who will all be showcasing the very latest technologies and innovations in the market. 

“We have received huge support from both local and overseas businesses, government bodies and associations this year which has allowed us to deliver an event which highlights products, content and innovation. We have brought together knowledge sharing from around the globe to help the growth of aquaculture, agriculture and animal health in the Middle East. Our various conference streams form a great platform for learning and networking,” said Samantha Bleasby, Exhibition Director for AgraME. 

“We are also proud to be able to offer the region's first CPD accredited Animal Health conference, free of charge this year. With expert knowledge from Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, Dubai Municipality and key animal health professionals, we bring together the MEA veterinary industry to access high-level content, networking and training opportunities,” she added.
