Ambassador’s Message - 7th edition of BAPA FoodPro International Expo - 21st November 2019
I wish to extend my warm and sincere congratulations to Bangladesh Agro Processors’ Association (BAPA) for jointly organizing with Rainbow Exhibition & Event Management the seventh edition of BAPA FoodPro International Expo.
This exhibition is now a key event for the booming food processing industry in Bangladesh. The sector has been growing at an annual growth rate of 15% over the past few years to reach an estimated USD 4.8 billion. This event will surely contribute to build more business opportunities and connect local and international companies.
France has a long history of agriculture and agro processing and is now one of the biggest exporter of food processing equipment and farm machinery. Through trade associations like ADEPTA (French Association for the Development of international Trade for Agri-food Techniques and Products) and AXEMA (French Farm Machinery Manufacturers Association), French companies share their experience all over the world. A delegation of AXEMA has shown great interest during its visit in Bangladesh last September.
Reaching almost 5M€ since start of 2019, exports of food processing equipment from France to Bangladesh are increasing steadily, as interest for the quality from French manufacturers is growing.
I wish the exhibitors as well as organisers and visitors all the success and a fruitful event.
