The Week will feature numerous activities related to sustainable agriculture, food production, and food security issues, including exhibitions, conferences, seminars and workshops, awards ceremonies, and technical tours related to the agricultural sector. This is in addition to fisheries, food security, beekeeping, honey production, and the cold chain, all of which are held under one roof to simulate the future aspirations of investing in food security.
