The chairman of the Bahrain Chamber, Sameer Nass, underlined the importance of creating a unified GCC strategy for food security, particularly in light of the impact of the war on the international food supply chain.
He also highlighted the correlation between supporting cargo companies and enhancing food security, reaffirmed the importance of encouraging public-private partnership in the food security dossier in the GCC countries, and stressed consolidating efforts to encourage more investments.
