Agreements on exporting different Syrian food products signed at Gulfood 2020 in Dubai

DUBAI, (ST)- Tens of agreements and contracts on exporting different Syrian food products to the world markets were signed on the sidelines of the Gulfood 2020 exhibition recently held in Dubai.

The Syrian pavilion in the exhibition witnessed huge turnout of visitors during the five days of the event as the Syrian food companies had exhibited a variety of their best and newest production.

Director General of the Local Production and Exports Support and Development Agency Ibrahim Maidah said in a statement to SANA that the Gulfood this year was a new opportunity to promote and market the Syrian products and to enhance their presence in foreign markets.

 The stands of the participating Syrian food companies received businessmen and traders from different part of the world who heard about the quality of Syrian food industries.

Talal Qal'aji, Head of the Food Section at the Damascus and Damascus Countryside Chamber of Industry, said that Syria's participation was very distinguished as it created an opportunity for Syrian food dealers to have contacts with their counterparts from other countries in order to establish partnerships that support Syrian exports.
