Afghanistan signs $2.38mn worth of trade deals in Gulfood exhibition

Afghan traders who attended the Gulfood exhibition in Dubai signed a number of contracts with USD 2.38mn for agricultural products.

The Gulfood exhibition is the world’s largest annual culinary event in the Middle East region.

The USAID supported Afghanistan’s participation in the event where thousands of international buyers had the opportunity to learn about the country’s products such as saffron, apples, apricots, melons, grapes, raisins and pomegranates.

The Afghan traders are negotiating potential deals of USD 10mn following their participation in the event.

The Afghan Red Pomegranate signed the largest contract for Afghanistan that involves export of Kandahar’s pomegranates to South Korea.

Herat Saffron signed a deal of USD 700,000 with a Saudi buyer.

Afghanistan’s participation in the Gulfood exhibition over the past years has paved the way for millions of dollars in deals that opened up new markets for the country.
