The Canadian Business Council (CBC) Abu Dhabi supports the interactive webinar: Agriculture and Agri-Food: Business Opportunities in the Arab World hosted by Canada-Arab Business Council (CABC).

The Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) import over 70% of their food requirements. With disruptions in the current global supply chain, this raises an impending concern for the Arab region to ensure food safety and supply. As Arab governments re-evaluate their national food security strategies, opportunities exist for Canadian businesses to pursue commercial relationships with their Arab counterparts in the Agriculture and Agri-Food areas.

Hear from our speakers, to include the Canadian Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, the UAE Minister of State for Food Security (TBC) and respected business leaders, on how to actively engage in two-way trade and investment between Canada and the Arab world.
