The three-day expos will feature 200 booths from local and foreign exhibitors. Many of the exhibitors are from countries and territories that have advanced agricultural technology, including the Republic of Korea, Japan, Malaysia and China.
The exhibitions introduce a wide range of post-harvest preservation and treatment technology, machinery and equipment for food-safety testing and tracing product origin; food processing and printing and food packaging machinery and equipment; agricultural products; biotechnology; and gardening tools, among others.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Nguyen Phuong Dong, Deputy Director of the city’s Department of Industry and Trade, said the three fairs offer businesses a chance to introduce their latest agricultural technologies and learn about advanced technologies and equipment, as well as help producers and traders exchange information and explore business opportunities.
The events also help promote the use of technology in agricultural production and processing with the aim of improving productivity, quality and export value of the country’s agricultural products, according to Dong.
The highlight of this year’s exhibition is an exclusive seminar from top industry authorities, which will be organized by the Vietnam Printing Association on August 30. The seminar will introduce 2D & 3D printing technologies and their applications in the printing industry in Vietnam.
