This year’s eidition is expected to be the largest so far, featuring six pavilions from the Netherlands, France, the US, South Korea, China, and the Czech Republic. About 10,000 visitors are expected at the event.
Hoang Thanh Van, head of the Livestock Department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development Vietnam, said that the Vietnam’s livestock industry has achieved a growth rate of nearly 3 per cent in 2017, despite many challenges in consumption and production.
He noted that the industry is moving from small and fragmented household breeding to large-scale farming in an effort to develop closed line production as well as create a national food value chain. Thus, technology plays a crucial role in the development of the local livestock industry.
ILDEX Vietnam 2018 will showcase advanced technology for livestock breeding, dairy, and the aquaculture sector. The event is also a platform for local and international firms to introduce new products and update on contemporary market trends.
Within the framework of the exhibition, there will be seminars held by international and local experts. Some topics include the current situation of dairy and beef cattle breeding in Vietnam, mordern pig production, and Australian cattle imports in Vietnam.
ILDEX Vietnam 2018 is organised by Minh Vi Exhibition and Advertisement Services Co., Ltd. in collaboration with VNU Exhibition Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. The event receives strong support from the Livestock Department, the Federation of Asian Veterinary Associations (FAVA), VIV Asia, and many other organisations in the industry.
