Bahrain Heads to Indian Food Fair


A delegation from the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) as well as businesspeople and investors will participate in the 2017 India International Food Fair to be held in New Delhi on November 3-5.

The head of BCCI’s Food and Agriculture Committee, Khalid Al-Amin, said Bahrain’s participation aims to expand trade in food industries including rice, cooking oil and pulses, to enhance national food security. 

He noted the strength of bilateral relations in various fields, mainly economic, trade and investment. He stressed the significance of the fair, which is one of the largest at the Asian level, and added that the Indian government has allocated agricultural land for foreign investors, which could benefit Bahrain’ food security.
