Three-hundred local businesspeople and traders are set to attend the animal husbandry and processing exposition “VIV Asia 2015,” which will be held in Bangkok from March 11 to 13.
The biennial event, which will take place at Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), presents the entire feed to meat supply chain, and focuses on livestock farming in Asia’s emerging markets.
“The expo is a good opportunity to observe and learn about new solutions and technologies for the livestock and fishery sectors,” said Daw Hla Hla Thein, chairperson of Myanmar Broiler Association.
The event, slated to become one of the biggest exhibitions in Southeast Asia, will feature exhibitors from over 40 countries to present livestock, fishery and dairy technologies, and husbandry equipment from their relevant countries.
“We will learn more about equipment for livestock farming and processing through this [expo] than doing market surveys. With our country’s current situation, we cannot turn to exports. Some analysts say we lack technology, but what we actually lack is funding, basic infrastructure and arable land,” Daw Hla Hla Thein added.
The expo will feature talks and seminars on animal husbandry industries and technologies as well as on bi-product applications including biogas.
The event is expected to receive around 35,000 industrial players from Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
VIV Asia 2013 attracted over 33,000 visitors, up 11 percent from the 2011 edition of VIV Asia.
