The International Exhibition and Conference on Agricultural Fertilisers, Chemicals and Machinery in Viet Nam opened in HCM City on July 27.

Agro Vietnam 2017 has attracted 80 exhibitors from 10 countries and territories, including Japan, the US, South Korea, Malaysia, China, and Taiwan.

The products on show include a wide range of fertilisers, pesticides, agricultural machinery and chemicals, vegetable and fruit seeds, and other products.

The biennial event will also feature conferences on Viet Nam’s pesticide and fertiliser markets, government regulations on production and export of chemicals and other topics.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Bui Thị Thanh An, head of the Viet Nam Trade Promotion Agency in HCM City, said the exhibition is a good opportunity for local and foreign enterprises to exchange information and explore business prospects.

It would also help promote investment in the agricultural sector in Viet Nam, she said.

Some companies import technical pesticides to formulate products for domestic use and exports, he said.
