HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — An international exhibition on livestock, dairy, meat-processing and aquaculture, ILDEX Vietnam 2014, opened on March 19 at the Sai Gon Exhibition and Convention Center in District 7.

The biennial event, which runs until March 21, has attracted 180 exhibitors from 25 countries and territories, including France, Korea, the Netherlands, China, and Indonesia.
