“A national exposition of Belarus will be arranged for the first time during the international agriculture, animal husbandry, food, beverages, and packing technologies expo Agrofood, which will take place in Nigeria on 26-28 March.”
Yevgeny Vvedensky, Director of the exhibition enterprise BelInterExpo of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BelCCI), said in a statement
“The expo will take place in Lagos where over 20 million people live and will feature more than ten national pavilions of European countries, including Germany, Netherlands, and Italy.
“It will be the first ever national exposition of Belarus in Nigeria. ”
The same is true for the exposition of Belarusian manufacturers during the expo. Nigeria may be interested in Belarusian vehicles, machines, equipment, vegetable growing technologies, food, and beverages. “Nigeria boasts large reserves of hydrocarbons, respectively it has money to buy road construction machines and agricultural ones.
“The country cannot produce enough food on its own, this is why the largest food producers are busy exploring this market. “We believe now is a good time to help Belarusian companies penetrate the market, find potential partners,” the official noted.
A total of eight national expositions at foreign expos will be organized this year. The national expositions will be organized by the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BelCCI), the National Center for Marketing of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the State Science and Technology Committee.
