Vietnamese investments talk of town at Horti Asia

Building a market takes time. And after 5 years, the Horti Asia is reaping the benefits of what it has sown. Also the combination with the concurrent VIV livestock event has turned out to give a positive impulse to the 5th edition of the Bangkok conference. Immediately after the opening this morning, the trade show got crowded with, according to exhibitors, an interesting amount of serious international investors and buyers. "By far the best edition, already after one day", said one of the participants.

Wether or not as a result of the decision to organize the Horti Asia and Agri Technica Asia at the same time with VIV, the Horti Asia event is much improved in comparison with the previous edition in 2015. The addition of the hosted buyer program also brought a large selection of serious international investors to the show. With an estimated 50,000 visitors, the VIV without any doubt brings more traffic towards the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre, but it is also the increased opportunity for horticultural development in South East Asia (Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia) that has generated interest for the trade show.

The current ongoing investments in Vietnam in particular are the talk of town. Greenhouse builders and suppliers speak of many private investments by Vietnamese companies taking advantage of the opportunities for safe local produce. Some of them in vertical farms and plant factories, but most in greenhouses and other protective structures. As Vietnamese farmers and investors by nature like they go out and travel, many of them have come to Bangkok to get acquainted with new technologies and supplies.
