EuroTier organisers DLG are on hand to discuss the event with Vietnamese livestock experts at Ildex from March 25-27 March 2010.
Vietnam is the world’s fourth largest pork producer, and farmers account for nearly half of Vietnam’s 88 million population. They have lots to do because Vietnamese consumers have more disposable income and sales of pork and chicken are rising. The booming livestock industry was given a major boost recently following an increase in government subsidies.
“We are getting more and more interest from Vietnam,” confirms Annette Reichhold, marketing manager South-Pacific, EuroTier. “With new government subsidies announced earlier this year, we are expecting EuroTier to become an important platform for advanced technology purchasing decisions to support the country’s ambitious goals.”
These ambitious goals include Vietnamese Government plans to boost the annual growth rate of the country’s agricultural sector by more than 3.5 percent by 2020. They reckon high-tech farming is the key not only to reaching this target but also to ensure national food security, now and in the future. The value of produce from this sector is forecast to reach 10-15 percent of total agriculture production within the next five years, and 30-35 percent by 2020.
EuroTier is the world’s top event for international animal production technologies. Covering every aspect of production; industry special events and forums tackle a wide range of global issues. It is the ideal information platform for countries such as Vietnam looking to invest and modernise its agricultural sector.
The second Chinese-European Pig Summit will take place at EuroTier and will include speakers from the Chinese government and a delegation of Chinese pig experts.
The German Association of Veterinary Practitioners (BPT) will once again hold its annual congress and associated veterinary medicine exhibition. It will be held at the same Exhibition Grounds and at the same time as EuroTier.
Furthermore, an International Animal Health Event organised jointly by the DLG and BPT will not only serve as a meeting place for veterinarians from all over the world, but also as a link between EuroTier and the BPT Congress.
Huge interest for BioEnergy exhibition
There is also plenty of exhibitor interest for the BioEnergy Decentral exhibition. Held parallel with EuroTier, this new event caters for the growing interest in this novel business segment. Visitors will be able to learn all about the very latest renewable energy developments. The emphasis is not just on biogas from slurry and energy plants, but also on wood, energy grain and liquid bio-fuels. Some 300 exhibitors have already booked stand space.
EuroTier’s Hanover location in the heart of Europe is ideal for attracting visitors from all over the world. It provides a fantastic opportunity for North America’s biggest pork producers to meet and share their knowledge with counterparts from Europe and further East to China and Vietnam.
