The next virtual BMEL country seminar in cooperation with GEFA e.V. will be realised in close cooperation with the AHK Iraq.

With an export volume of 56 million euros in 2020, German agricultural exports to Iraq increased by 2.3 % even during the global Covid-19 pandemic. This continues the trend of rising exports since 2016. The largest exports by value are bakery products (+20.7 %), confectionery (-23 %) and dairy products (-15.1 %).

The seminar will enable participants to assess the current economic situation and the Covid 19-related changes in the marketing situation and to draw concrete conclusions for their export activities.
