Islamic Development Bank announces the opening of the First Jeddah International Islamic Trade Fair


Prince Abdul Majeed to open the First Jeddah International Islamic Trade Fair


Makkah Governor Prince Abdul Majeed is to open the First Jeddah International Islamic Trade Fair on June 9. The event will be held under the patronage of Crown Prince Abdullah, deputy premier and commander of the National Guard. HE Dr. Ahmed Muhammad Ali, the president of the Islamic Development Bank (IDB), made the announcement at a press conference today at the IDB’s headquarters in Jeddah.


The fair, at which 40 countries of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference will exhibit, will run until June 14 at the Jeddah International Exhibition and Convention Centre.


Promising unrivalled access for businessmen to established and flourishing Muslim economies and to some of the most exciting investment opportunities available in the developing world today, the fair, sponsored jointly by the IDB and the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) offers the chance to quickly and effectively raise the level of trade between Muslim countries, said Majed Al-Kasabi, the JCCI’s secretary-general. “Each country’s national stand will showcase a range of items, from traditional products, reflecting a country’s heritage and culture, through to highly sophisticated state-of-the-art technology,” he said.

The trade fair has been organised by the Jeddah Marketing Board, an organisation set up to specifically promote Jeddah as a world-class centre of trade and commerce and

to attract foreign investment. Among the countries attending the exhibition are: Algeria, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Benin, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Comoros, Egypt, Gambia, Guinea, Indonesia, Kyrgyz, Malaysia, Mauritania, Mozambique, Niger, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Syria, Tajikistan, the United Arab Emirates, Togo, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, and Yemen. Other attendees will include the Council of Islamic Chambers and the Islamic Centre for Trade Development.


“Each country has the ideal opportunity to exhibit a wide range of products and to fully promote investment opportunities in their country,” said Amr Dabbagh, chairman of the Jeddah Marketing Board (JMB), the trade fair’s organizer. “The JMB has devised an extensive support programme to help maximise each country’s presence at the show.”
