The B&H Foreign Trade Chamber and USAID/Sweden FARMA II project are organizing the visit to the International food and drinks fair Gulfood 2017, which is to take place from February 26th to March 2nd in Dubai (United Arab Emirates).

The purpose of this visit is to support the B&H companies in establishing direct contacts with potential buyers, and learning about business opportunities in UAE and Gulf countries.

The expected departure of the business delegation from Sarajevo is planned for February 25th and the return will be scheduled for February 28th or March 1st (depending on available flight options). Up to 10 processors of poultry meat, fruit and vegetables and medicinal / aromatic plants are expected to participate in this visit. The organizers will cover the costs of airfare (Sarajevo-Dubai-Sarajevo) for one company representative, while the other costs (accommodation, visa and ticket for the fair) will be covered by participating companies.

In addition to visiting the trade fair, the members of the delegation will also meet with the consultant, engaged by the partnering USAID project, which will advise the companies how to best access these markets and find the potential partners. In case that more than 10 companies apply for this visit, the organizers will select the participants based on their export potential.

All interested companies from the aforementioned sub-sectors are invited to apply for participation by January 26th, via e-mail or fax 033 566 239.
