Livestock Myanmar 2014 Expo in Jan’14

Myanmar will host a livestock, feed and meat industry expo in January next year, the event’s organiser said.
Hosted by the Myanmar Livestock Federation (MLF) and organised by Hong Kong-based event organiser UBM Asia, the Livestock Myanmar 2014 Expo – Myanmar’s 1st Official Feed, Livestock & Meat Industry Show – will be held from 23-25 January 2014 at the Tatmadaw Exhibition Hall in Yangon.
The expo will address changes and opportunities in the animal protein sectors, major issues and future trends, including regulations, sustainability, health and productivity, M Gandhi, managing director, UBM ASEAN Business, said.
Products, solutions and know-how from leading ASEAN agribusiness companies will also be showcased, he added.
Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department deputy general director general Dr Khin Zaw said the government was pleased to support the expo.
“Being a comprehensive and international trade show that covers the entire value chain from farm to fork, it is the ideal platform to stimulate interest in business opportunities and technology transfer in Myanmar.
“We encourage cooperation and investment to contribute to accelerating our economic and social development. Myanmar has the potential to become a regional force in agriculture – the best is yet to come.”
UBM Asia said MLF will include its 14th Annual Meeting (23-24 January) in the livestock expo.
“We are expecting more than 500 members to attend,” said Dr Mya Han, chairman of MLF.
“As Myanmar’s peak livestock organisation, we have more than 13,000 members representing all states and divisions, covering the entire livestock industry. Our annual meeting will include presentations from the seven states on the challenges of livestock production in their region.”
Myanmar is strategically located for export markets, straddling the border between South Asia, Southeast Asia and China – home to more than 3.6 billion consumers. It also has ample untapped arable land, oil and gas reserves, water, and corn – the major ingredient for livestock feed.
