Vietnam to attend agricultural technology expo in India

The 2017 EIMA Agrimach India, the 5th International Exhibition & Conference on Agricultural Machineries, Equipment and Technologies, seeks to showcase the best and latest in agri-machineries besides providing an excellent opportunity for Indian and overseas players catering to the entire value chain through vertical-based national and international pavilions, according to the organisers. 

Marco Acerbi, exhibitions department director of the Italian Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers Federation (FEDERUNACOMA) – one of the organisers – said the machinery displayed at the show could be adapted for both the Indian and Vietnamese markets. 

Jasmeet Singh, head of agriculture at the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), said India too, like Vietnam, faced the challenge of small land holdings. 

“We have huge lands but cultivable lands for farming are fragmented.” 

He added FICCI was working with FEDERUNACOMA to launch all kinds of farm machinery in India and would like to do the same in Vietnam.
