(MENAFN Press) While agriculture investments experienced continued growth in 2013, allocations of capital to the sector continue to remain below the industry's potential. The level of investment in agriculture directly parallels poverty reduction and increased food security, a growing concern both in the GCC region and in the developing world. Strategic and financial investors continue to exhibit strong interest in allocating capital across the agricultural value chain worldwide, and will gain education and access to investible opportunities at the Global AgInvesting (GAI) Middle East conference next month in Abu Dhabi



This second annual conference at the InterContinental Abu Dhabi, February 24-26, will focus on practical solutions for addressing food security priorities in the MENA region, including outsourcing strategies and implementation of technological advances. HighQuest Partners (www.highquestpartners.com), a global food and agricultural strategic advisory firm, is hosting the event in conjunction with the Food Security Center of Abu Dhabi



"Food security is a major issue in the Middle East and North Africa due to challenges such as regional water scarcity, reliance on imports to meet food demand and demographic pressures," said Philippe de Laprouse of HighQuest Partners. "Our GAI Middle East conference provides insights and networking opportunities for strategic investors, family offices and Sovereign Wealth Funds in the region that are interested in financing projects that will address these food security challenges.



The full conference agenda and registration information are available exclusively at www.globalaginvesting.com/ME14
