Hanoi to host agriculture, aquatic product fairs

The 2019 International Agriculture Trade Fair (AgroViet) and an aquatic product fair will be held in Hanoi in coming weeks, heard a press conference hosted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) on September 17.

After 18 years, AgroViet has been the most prestigious international expo in agriculture and rural development of Vietnam. This year, the event is set to house 250 booths of nearly 200 firms, introducing agricultural machinery, veterinary medicine and safe agro-forestry-fishery products, among others.

Director of the MARD’s Trade Promotion Centre of Agriculture Dao Van Ho said the annual trade promotion activity aims to expand business cooperation and connect firms and consumers. It offers chances for businesses to study customers’ demand in a bid to improve product quality and competitiveness.

The expo, running from September 26 to 29, will also seek to promote the image of Vietnam’s agriculture sector, honour high quality products and introduce new technologies in the field, as well as foster Agriculture 4.0 to create additional value for the country’s farm produce.

Meanwhile, the aquatic product fair this year will introduce prominent products of Vietnam which hold huge potential for export, including those of freshwater aquaculture in northern localities.

With about 100 pavilions, it will help businesses to meet with their partners and consumers to bolster sale in both domestic and international markets.

About 1,000 farmers and producers nationwide will attend the fair, which will take place from October 8 to 13.
