Turkey’s Aegean province of Izmir starting this Thursday is set to host one of Europe’s premier agriculture and livestock fairs.

Producers from abroad, agriculture and livestock firms, and domestic and foreign tractor makers will participate in the 14th Agroexpo International Agriculture and Livestock Fair, Turkey’s Agriculture and Forestry Ministry said on Tuesday.

Bekir Pakdemirli, the agriculture and forestry minister, said the four-day event will pave the way for new opportunities in agriculture as well as areas of potential cooperation.

This year’s fair for the first time will feature a summit of agriculture ministers, he added.

"Sixteen ministers, deputy ministers from various countries, representatives of international organizations, and more than 30 high-level delegates will take part in the fair,” he said.
