ERBIL (Kurdistan24) – Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Masrour Barzani visited a potato production field in the Bardarash district and met with several farmers in the area, in which he reaffirmed his support for Kurdistan Region farmers, according to a statement from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).

In a meeting with farmers, Prime Minister Barzani congratulated them and expressed his satisfaction with the growth of domestic production. He reaffirmed his full support for farmers in the Kurdistan Region and assured them that the KRG will continue to prioritize the further development of the agricultural sector.

Meanwhile, farmers expressed their gratitude for the premier’s support and presented various proposals and comments to enhance the agricultural sector and address their issues. The Prime Minister reassured his commitment to offering all necessary facilities and support for farmers.

On October 23, 2023, KRG signed an agreement with several Saudi companies to export 3,000 tons of potatoes to the Gulf country.

The majority of Kurdistan Region's potato exports to the Gulf countries are requested by international fast-food chains, such as KFC, McDonald’s, and Hardee's, which view both the quality and price of the product as unrivaled.

Among other products Kurdish trade officials plan to export are grapes, apples, and figs.

Bashar Mushir, the general director of Kurdistan-Holland (K-H) Company for Agricultural Investments, told Kurdistan 24 on Sept. 5, 2023, that nearly 1,000 tons of potatoes have been exported to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) since the beginning of August.
