OXUS Afghanistan was delighted by the visit of the President during the International Agriculture Fair Exhibition

OXUS Afghanistan participated in Agriculture Fair Exhibition which was organized by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock and supported by USAID.

As one of the biggest microfinance institutions of the country, OXUS Afghanistan is committed in the development of agriculture. By providing loans to small farmers, OXUS gives them the opportunity to invest in their agri-business in order to improve the quality and the quantity of their goods.

During the exibition H.E Mr. Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, President of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and other high ranking officials visited OXUS’ pavillion.

The International Agricultural Fair hosted Afghan and international venders, showcasing the country’s crown jewels of agriculture, such as grapes, pomegranates, dried fruits, nuts, cashmere, and other high value crops and agricultural services.
The exibition provided business opportunities to identify prime agri-business investment opportunities, network with hundreds of leading business representatives, participate in business-to-business match-making meetings, explore profitable markets and business sectors, gain valuable information from policy makers and business leaders, learn about the latest technology at the AgFair’s productivity center, promote insurance culture in Afghanistan, showcase products and new technologies and forge business deals in the country’s expanding agriculture sector.

The future of Afghanistan’s agricultural sector depends on expanding the customer base beyond Afghanistan’s borders. USAID has helped open new markets to Afghan goods by helping farmers meet international packaging and shipping standards and by organizing international agricultural trade fairs. This year’s participants included importers, exporters, wholesalers, retailers, producers, input suppliers, and service providers from throughout Afghanistan as well as from countries including the United States, China, Germany, India, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, and the United Arab Emirates.
