HCM CITY — 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 Hà Nội next month.

According to the organisers, 150 enterprises have registered so far from around Việt 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 Hà Thị Phương Lâm, 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 Hà Nội 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 Việt Nam Administration of Forestry, the Agro Processing and Market Development Authority, the Việt 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, Việt 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
