Paraguayan food sector delegation visits Abu Dhabi
Gustavo Leite, Paraguay's minister of Industry and Commerce, met with Ibrahim Al-Mahmoud, first deputy chairman of the Abu Dhabi chamber, and extended an invitation for the group to visit Paraguay to see the investment opportunities in the food and beverage industry as well as in agriculture.
Al-Mahmoud said that while trade between the countries has been poor, it does not reflect the true interest the UAE has in Paraguayan investment.
“Such weak numbers push us forward to spend more efforts towards achieving a wide leap in strengthening economic and investment cooperation and increasing the volume of trade exchange between the two friendly countries,” Al-Mahmoud said.
Al-Mahmoud said the UAE was keenly interested in ways the Paraguayan food sector could enhance his country's food production to meet the growing demands of the marketplace.
