The Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock, AgFair, and the Afghan International Chamber of Commerce will present AgFair 2007: The Afghan Agricultural Trade Fair. The trade fair will be held in Kabul, Afghanistan from April 22-23, 2007. 

Agfair is a gathering of farmers, agribusiness people, government and NGOs working towards agricultural development in Afghanistan.  It will include demonstrations of the latest farming techniques and equipment, livestock competition, and produce, cold storage and processing equipment displays.  AgFair will serve as a forum to exchange ideas, form partnerships, and celebrate Afghan agriculture.  Participants at the event would include representatives from the ministry's departments and regional offices, equipment manufacturers, agro-processing firms, fertilizers and seed dealers, carpet dealers, dried fruit and nut processors, livestock and poultry businesses, wool and cashmere traders, irrigation suppliers, storage vendors, transportation and telecommunication companies, banks and universities.


About 250 booths from 12 countries are expected to participate in the fair with an estimated 50,000-60,000 visitors. Among the countries to take part are Britain, China, Germany, India, Pakistan, Turkey and the United States.

Afghanistan's major agriculture exports include dried and fresh fruits, as well as carpets, wool and nuts. Approximately 80% of Afghanistan's 26 million people are employed in the agriculture sector. Agriculture accounts for 53 % of the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
