About Us

The Arab Authority for Agricultural Investment and Development (AAAID) is a pan-Arab financial institution established in 1976. The AAAID contributes to the capital of 54 existing and under-establishment companies across 12 Arab countries, which enjoy many benefits and concessions in accordance with the constitutive agreements between the Authority and its 21 member states. Total assets of the AAAID amounted to approximately USD 1.3 billion as at the end of 2019.

We launch major agricultural investment projects to optimize investment returns and support agricultural development in Arab countries.

The AAAID has extensive experience in the field of agricultural investment and processing. To achieve high profits for shareholders, the AAAID ensures that companies are established according to professional investment criteria. AAAID investments fall within four main sectors, namely: agricultural processing, livestock production, plant production and agricultural services. Furthermore, the AAAID supports sustainable agricultural development plans in Arab countries with the aim of reducing the food gap and improving people’s lives in the communities in which it operates. The AAAID’s affiliate companies support small-scale farmers through agricultural technology transfer, funding programs, numerous developmental activities, as well as the dissemination of scientific research results for the development of communities.
