RBA Kicks Off Farmers Week 2021

On a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon, the Falkland Islands Rural Business Association (RBA) welcomed members of the community to its Farmers Week Expo in Stanley’s town hall, marking the return of their highly popular Farmers Week event.

After COVID-19 put a halt to the event in 2020, it was a welcome sight to see the town hall once again packed with members of the public visiting stalls from local organisations and businesses. The Expo headlines a busy week of events organised by the RBA, which includes talks on tourism, climate change, telecoms, and much, much more.

This year also marks the first time the Falkland Islands Chamber of Commerce has been actively involved in the RBA Expo for several years. The Chamber welcomed members of the public to its stall at the Expo, highlighting the work the Chamber has done over the last year and introducing them to Square.

The Chamber is also hosting a free event for members of the rural community on Thursday 8th July from 6 pm, to discuss the priorities for their businesses.

We were pleased to see a number of Chamber members attending the Expo on Sunday showing their support for the RBA, including Kelper Stores, Fortuna, The Falkland Islands Tourist Board, The Falkland Islands Company, The Falkland Islands Wool Company, Pinsent Masons, and The Falkland Islands Development Corporation.

We hope that the RBA and their members enjoy the busy week ahead. We want to thank them for their hard work organising it and for inviting us to be a part of it.
