Africa Days

The 39th edition of Macfrut is increasingly linked to sub-Saharan Africa.
The opportunities for the fruit and vegetable sector of the African continent will be at the centre of many events.

All this will be part of the "Africa Days" project created in collaboration with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, AICS, ITA - Italian Trade Office, UNIDO and in partnership with Confindustria Assafrica & Mediterraneo.

The novelties of this edition are the following:

  • Best Practices: AICS projects in Africa

The Africa Days dedicate a day to the projects carried out in Africa by AICS - the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation which will be present at the fair with a dedicated exhibition area.
