The Conference will be held at Konya the city of Maulana i Room in continuation of the series held during November 2011, 2013 and 2015 at Peshawar. The three conferences focused on rehabilitation of the post flood Dairy Sector of khyber Pakhtunkhwa during 2011; sensitizing the stakeholders about Halal meat export potential of the Region during 2013 and deliberations on Self employment for the youth and hygienic food production for the people of the Region during 2015.

During the third event Dr Mithat Direk accompanied by Vice President of Selcuk University Konya and signed MoUs with the university of agriculture Peshawar, UVAS, UAF and PMASAU for collaboration under Mevlana Exchange Program and other arrangements. We would like to harness these opportunities for be facilitating visits of Scientists, Students, Government Officer, industry representatives , farmers, and civil society representatives.

The leading industrialists of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in particular and Pakistan in general will be invited to display their products and services during the event, in addition to a large number of representatives from the farming community, government, development and private sector organizations will participate.
