Concluded Thursday, the activities of the forty-sixth Baghdad International Fair, with the participation of 363 companies from 13 countries, and with a wide public presence, reflecting a true picture of the success of this year’s session.

The exhibition witnessed various artistic and cultural activities, such as a display of classic cars, a display of the Iraqi motorcycle team, and other events. The Director-General of the General Company for Iraqi Exhibitions and Commercial Services of the Ministry of Commerce, Hashem Muhammad Hatem, told the Iraqi News Agency (INA), “The Baghdad International Fair witnessed the flock of Iraqi families from various regions to see the most important exhibits and products of companies and countries participating in the exhibition.”

Hatem added that “the exhibition is the largest cultural and social gathering, as it includes places to shop for Iraqi, Arab and international goods,” stressing that “the company is in high coordination with the security authorities to create safe conditions for families wandering the corridors of the exhibition.”

Cultural events 


The Baghdad International Fair witnessed the establishment of a number of cultural events and seminars within the pavilions of companies and participating countries, as well as the establishment of fireworks launch events and a display of rare cars. The number of visitors to the exhibition this year exceeded 100,000 visitors during the days of the exhibition, which was widely accepted by the public, which has long been searching for what it wants, especially in the corridors of the Egyptian pavilion, which is characterized annually by launching direct sales of various Egyptian products of clothes, shoes, folk and folk costumes, as well as bags and some Handcraft products. 

Outdoor bazaars

During the exhibition, a group of outdoor bazaars was held, in which a large number of women participated, selling beautiful products and accessories for young people, as well as soaps, cosmetic oils and skin care products made from natural raw materials without artificial additives. A number of ministries participated in the exhibition with their own pavilions, such as the Ministry of Industry, whose pavilion was distinguished by the participation of all its companies and distinguished products. 

Strong competition 

One of the cases that I (conscious) has noticed, is that there is a feverish competition between beekeepers to sell their products of honey, wax and royal food, in addition to some of their farm products such as sesame and rashi, and the manufacture of Alolouja sweets, tamarind, raisins and other field products.

While the manufacture and manufacture of Iraqi nuts had a presence in the direct selling bazaar, as well as the sale of coffee was a remarkable presence, as several local companies competed over the quality and taste of what is offered and presented to visitors to the exhibition, who expressed their satisfaction with those products, and they also received the approval of the performance of the exhibitors for those products.

Tasting competitions 


Many of the pavilions participating in the exhibition witnessed the holding of competitions, especially some banks, in order to introduce their activities in the Iraqi banking market, in addition to holding festivals to taste food and sweets free of charge for the public to try. These competitions also witnessed the presentation of valuable prizes to the individuals and families participating in them.  LINK
