Expo 2023 Doha offers a unique chance to showcase Qatar’s significant progress in the advancement of its agricultural and horticultural sectors, as well as the nation’s determination to establish itself among the international community in this field, Abdullah Salem Al Sulaiteen, Chairman of Al Sulaiteen Agricultural and Industrial Complex (SAIC), has said.
