The events are considered as a venue for both the input and output of Vietnam’s agricultural sector, featuring almost 200 booths of 120 domestic and foreign enterprises.

The Vietnam Farm and Food Expo introduces outstanding agricultural products, food and plant varieties from different localities throughout the country, while the Vietnam Agritech Expo features the latest machinery, equipment and production chains serving agricultural activities.

Addressing the events, Nguyen Phuoc Hung, Vice President of the Ho Chi Minh City Business Association said that the annual exhibitions aim to promote the application of science and technology in order to improve productivity and quality in agricultural production, while seeking markets for Vietnamese farm produce.

As part of the events, the organising board will coordinate with the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, of the Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long, to hold a conference on strengthening the links for selling farm produces in Vinh Long, in which Vinh Long will introduce its agricultural development potential, especially its fruit exports.

According to Vice Director of the Vinh Long Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Van Liem, through the exhibitions the province will discover additional distribution channels for its products, thus boosting the sustainable growth of the local agricultural sector.

The events will run until July 28.
