In holding this seminar, Shiraz chamber of commerce played an effective role. In addition to allocating the halls, they provide a friendly and comfortable atmosphere to create a dialogue between deputy of Iranian minister and German parliamentary deputy of agriculture minister. Also they provide possibilities for producers and exporters and progressive farmers to meet the agriculture policy makers.
Mass media such as TV, radio and specialized agricultural magazines and journals were very active and broadcasted the news and the events of the exhibition.

With respect to the success of Agropars-Agrotech in 2016 and wishes of both partners, DLG and NSP, we hope to continue our cooperation during the upcoming years. Surely our learned lessons and experiences will help us to improve our standards.
To NSP, international fair is not just to promote the import of machinery and inputs, but we believe that the international fair can create an opportunity to promote foreign investment in agriculture and at the same time provide the situation for domestic producers to improve their management. Therefor they may increase their products quality to be able to compete with the other international companies and export their products. That is how the national economy will develop.
