WHY POULTRY MARKETING ROUND TABLE?
CRISIS MANAGEMENT – ADAPTING THROUGH UNCERTAINTIES
The Middle East is enduring a severe economic crisis since more than 3 years. This crisis is not restricted to Covid19 but complicated with conflicts and money availability that is affecting the poultry sector too. What is worse is that the crisis is expected to last.
It’s time to understand how to manage during such difficult times. How to live with it without being hurt. To find out the best ways, to set rules, to manage and to market despite the crisis.
For that reason, MEAP, VIV MEA, WATT Media (In alphabetic order) have decided to bring the “Crème de la crème” of the Poultry Industry in front of a thirsty professional public. The objective is to discuss and arrive at Scientific, Political, Legal, Economical, and social measures to face the crisis together and to market our Poultry in better ways.
