SIAM 2018 will face the challenge of the agroindustrial development of Morocco

2018/09/03 - Under the slogan "Logistics and Agricultural Markets", from April 24 to 28, the 13th edition of the International Agriculture Show of Morocco (SIAM) will take place in Meknès-Mequínez (Morocco). Its organizers expect a good attendance record as it is the main fair for the sector in the African continent and the meeting point of the whole agricultural field in Morocco.
The International Agriculture Show of Morocco (SIAM) is characterized by a strong patronage and institutional presence. In addition, it functions as a space for dissemination and promotion of the sector, within which conferences, competitions and various activities are organized, aimed at both professionals and the local public. In fact, SIAM is the main fair for the sector in the African continent and is the meeting point of the whole agricultural field in Morocco.

Agriculture is the main engine of the Moroccan economy, representing 15% of its GDP and employs around 40% of the active population. "Maroc Vert" is the agricultural development program that was launched in 2008 by the local government for the modernization of the sector and that aims to increase national agricultural production between 6,200 and 6,900 million euros per year during the decade 2008-2018. To this end, different national agricultural poles have been promoted, such as "l'Agropolis de Meknès", while offering subsidies to Moroccan farmers for the modernization of their equipment.

In the 2017 edition, SIAM had more than 1,350 exhibitors from 66 countries and occupied a total area of ​​172,000 square meters distributed in two areas (A and B) that were interconnected. There was also space for several rooms dedicated to conferences, space for restoration, activities and outdoor exhibition areas. According to the organization's data, the total number of attendees, including professionals and the general public, stood at around one million people.
