  • H.E. Dr. Bernd von Münchow-Pohl

    Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany Lagos

    As a representative of a country for which machinery of all sorts remains a major if not the biggest export category, I see great market potential in Nigeria, the continent’s largest economy, and in particular in the agrofood & plastprintpack sector.

    This 7th edition comes along in a bigger format, with more exhibition space, and more participating companies representing a wider geographical spread. Without a doubt, the fair’s overarching concept of “from field to fork” has proven successful.
