Agrifood team for the Gulf region

Agriculture and food activities for companies from the Netherlands who wish to do business in the Gulf region are coordinated by the Agricultural Office at the Netherlands' embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Our goal is to pursue pro-active involvement in the public and private sectors in the GCC countries. The agrifood team also assists companies in market access problems.
