The exhibition also includes Vietnamese start-ups through support programmes from the Ministry of Science and Technology.
Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Trần Văn Tùng said to build and develop the high-tech market, Growtech 2019 is expected to be an international-level exhibition of agriculture, forestry and fishery, a trading platform for new equipment and technologies, bringing sustainable agriculture development and creating real value of high quality agricultural production.
“This is not only an opportunity for professionals and business people to approach innovations and new technology products, but also a bridge to help farmers have deeper access to high-tech products that can be applied in the era of technology 4.0,” Tùng said.
Tùng said Vietnam Growtech 2019 will be a reliable address to support trade promotion between domestic and international businesses, helping boost consumption of domestic products, moving towards sustainable development for agriculture, forestry and fisheries.
The organisers said Vietnam Growtech 2019 is an ideal platform for international producers and traders to access Việt Nam’s main buyers who are representatives of about 300 high-tech agricultural cooperatives, 1,000 well-performing farmers and 500 typical national farm owners. — VNS
