The 11th annual Vietnam Agriculture Trade Fair (AgroVietnam 2011) opened in Hanoi on November 11.
The event is an important trade promotion activity of the agricultural sector, which aims to help individuals and businesses, promote their brands and exchange information on science and technology.
The fair features nearly 400 stands from 200 local and foreign businesses, displaying agro-forestry and seafood products, handicrafts, different types of seeds, machinery, and equipment. It also exhibits technologies for production, processing, and post-harvest preservation.
Addressing the opening ceremony, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Cao Duc Phat asserted that the event offered a good opportunity for businesses, manufacturers, and researchers to share experiences, approach advanced technologies, and improve the competitive edge of products.
The fair will serve as a bridge between production and consumption, promote agro-forestry and seafood products in the local market, and strengthen trade ties with foreign partners, said Phat.
A trade exchange between Vietnamese and foreign businesses will also be held during the fair to help businesses learn more about each other’s expertise and import-export potential to devise proper business strategies. Source: VOV
