A wide range of products, technologies and equipment used in the agricultural, forestry and fisheries sectors will be on display at Growtech, an international agriculture–forestry–fishery exhibition to be held in Ha Noi next month.

According to the organisers, 150 enterprises have registered so far from around Viet Nam and countries and territories like the Netherlands, Italy, Belarus, Czech Republic, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, and mainland China.

The second edition of the exhibition would feature advanced machinery and equipment and technology for irrigation, farming, harvesting, and preservation, machinery and equipment for forestry and machines for small-scale farming, said Ha Thi Phuong Lam, chairwoman of Adpex JSC, one of the event’s organisers.

The exhibition would offer local farmers and businesses the chance to see the latest technologies, equipment and products used in the agro-forestry and fishery sectors and collaborate with their foreign counterparts, she said.

Besides displaying innovations, Growtech will also contribute to trade promotion in the three fields.

Many conferences and seminars are scheduled to be held on the sidelines.

To be held at the Ha Noi International Exhibition Centre (I.C.E) from November 21 to 23, the exhibition is expected to attract more than 8,000 visitors, delegates and specialists from more than 20 countries and territories.

It is jointly organsied by the National Agency for Technology Entrepreneurship and Commercialisation Development, the Viet Nam Administration of Forestry, the Agro Processing and Market Development Authority, the Viet Nam Climate Innovation Centre, and Adpex JSC.

The agro-forestry-fishery sector plays a significant and growing role in the country’s exports.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Viet Nam earned US$29.54 billion from agro-forestry and fishery exports in the first nine months of the year, up 9.3 per cent from the same period last year. — VNS
