Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), one of the largest aluminium smelters in the world, has announced its sponsorship of the Bahrain International Garden Show 2012 that opened today (January 16) in the kingdom.
The Bahrain International Garden Show 2012 is being organised under the patronage of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and the support of HRH Princess Sabeeka bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa, wife of His Majesty the King of Bahrain.
The event, organised by the National Initiative for Agricultural Development, United Nations Industrial Development Organisation and the Economic Development Board – Bahrain, will run up to January 18 at the Bahrain International Convention & Exhibition Centre.
The theme for this year’s event is “Inspiring Agricultural Sustainability” and it will be highlighting the need to promote sustainable agricultural practices.
