MEXICALI — Hundreds of exhibitors from all over the world will gather about five miles south of this city for the first-ever AgroBaja agriculture exposition April 26-28.
Organizers expect Mexican President Vicente Fox to attend and make a speech Thursday afternoon, the first day of the expo.
Arturo Elias, spokesman for AgroBaja, said the expo will be an annual event and could be in the Imperial Valley next year.
"We have talked to the Farm Bureau, the Agricultural Commissioner's Office and promoted the possibility of an Imperial Valley expo through the Western Growers Association," Elias said.
All those agencies have received free passes for this year's expo that they can give to anyone who wishes to attend.
