The first International Agriculture–Forestry–Fishery Exhibition (Growtech 2017) will take place in Ha Noi from November 30 to December 2, the organisers have announced.

Jointly organised under the chairmanship of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, with the Ministry of Science and Technology and Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, this is the first Growtech event to be held in the country.

The exhibition is the largest and only specialised display of machinery, equipment and technology for farming, harvesting and preserving, bringing together major domestic and international enterprises operating and doing business in related fields.

The exhibition offers opportunities for farmers, fishermen and workers in the forestry sector to experience the latest technology and activities in all three fields of agriculture, forestry and fishery.

Besides displaying and demonstrating important innovation activities, Growtech also contributes to trade promotion in the three fields in Viet Nam.

In the context of globalization, Viet Nam's increasingly active participation in free trade agreements is opening up more great opportunities for domestic businesses.

Growtech was organised with the desire to develop a prestigious connection among industry players and to promote trade activities in the agriculture, forestry and fishery sectors.

Furthermore, the exhibition aims to lead to more national development, with Viet Nam becoming a leading exporter of commodities, agricultural products and food and staying among the top-five exporters with a gradually increasing growth rate in the three sectors.

Up to date, the exhibition has attracted the registration of 150 enterprises with more than 300 booths from businesses from all provinces and cities in Viet Nam, and 10 countries and territories with notable businesses from the UK, Italy, Czech Republic, Israel, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, China and Taiwan, among others.

Hosted at the international ICE exhibition centre, it is expected to have around 450 booths and attract more than 10,000 visitors, delegates and specialists from more than 20 countries and territories, including Viet Nam.

During 30 years of renewal (1986 - 2016), Viet Nam’s agriculture has achieved rapid and stable growth, with a positive shift in agricultural structuring.

From 2016 to 2020, the agriculture-forestry-fishery industry in Viet Nam increased its added value with sustainable development; applied scientific and technical achievements to improve capacity, productivity and quality; promoted commodity production moving towards a modern market economy; and increased its competitiveness and maintained rapid development efficiently and safely to become one of the key leaders of national exports.

Animal husbandry, fish processing, aquaculture, environmental protection and biodiversity conservation are some of the areas that are closely linked to the new national rural development strategy. — VNS
