UAE date exports up fivefold in last decade

In 2020, the UAE exported $235 million worth of dates. These exports accounted for around 60% of the country's agricultural produce. Currently, date production is booming in the UAE as government initiatives start to trickle down into profits for farmers.

The Al Dhaid Date Festival that took place in the UAE's emirate of Sharjah in late Jury is the latest example of the support the government is giving to the food sector. The event brought together thousands of farmers, manufacturers and distributors of agricultural equipment to facilitate deals and exchange of expertise.

The government has already taken huge steps to commercialise date cultivation and help farmers increase their productivity and profitability.
