Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture Delegation to Visit Kurdistan Region for Agricultural Cooperation Talks

In a bid to strengthen agricultural ties and bolster regional food security, a delegation from the Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture is poised to embark on a significant visit to the Kurdistan Region, scheduled to commence this Sunday.

Anticipated to touch down in Erbil today, the delegation is primed to partake in crucial discussions with representatives from the Ministry of Agriculture and the Erbil Agriculture Directorate of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).

Central to the agenda of these deliberations is the initiation of talks concerning the procurement of wheat from farmers situated in the Kurdistan Region. With favorable weather conditions contributing to a marked increase in wheat production this year compared to previous seasons, the Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture is poised to advocate for heightened wheat intake, urging the federal government of Iraq to enhance its support for local farmers.

This forthcoming strategic dialogue underscores the shared interest of both parties in nurturing agricultural collaboration and ensuring robust food security across the broader region. The potential outcomes of these discussions hold significance not only for Iraq and the Kurdistan Region but also for the wider Middle Eastern agricultural landscape.
