The first Vietnam International Exhibition on Processing, Packaging and Preserving Food & Agricultural Products (Vietnam PFA) 2019 will take place from July 24 to 27 at the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh City.

Vietnam PFA 2019 has received special attention from government management agencies and the business community and has had the patronage of and direct guidance from relevant ministries, with coordination among the leading management agencies at the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD).

“Vietnam PFA 2019 will create a favorable environment for expanding cooperation and promoting and introducing Vietnam’s food and agricultural products,” said Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Do Thang Hai. “This is an opportunity for Vietnamese enterprises to expand cooperation, attract investment, cooperate in production, and apply advanced science and technology as well as modern management experience from foreign partners. It is also a venue for international enterprises to seek opportunities, build partnerships, and invest in Vietnam’s agriculture sector.”

Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Tran Thanh Nam said he expects the exhibition to feature exchanges between businesses and expand markets, contributing to quality and added-value improvements in Vietnam’s food and agriculture products, so they may be part of regional and global supply chains.

The Organizing Board emphasized B2B forums as a bridge to bolster promotions and create links, and a “Business Match Making” activity will also be held. Mr. Nguyen Quoc Toan, Acting Director of the Agro Processing and Market Development Authority at MARD, said the agency will cooperate with the Vietnam Industry Agency and the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency at MoIT to create the content of specialized seminars and forums within the exhibition’s framework.

Enterprises participating at the exhibition are already well prepared. Ms. Violet, Director of the Tin Dan Co., said the company will bring several suitable solutions to controlling counterfeit goods in the agricultural sector.

The Asia Refrigeration Industry JSC (Arico) expects to promote its brand among foreign partners to enhance business, exchange experience, and promote trade between Arico and enterprises from Vietnam and elsewhere.

Ms. Thuy Nhi, Director of the Dai Chinh Quang Machinery Equipment Co., said she will showcase new machinery, technologies, and products and also introduce food and agricultural products. The company is preparing machinery and equipment to introduce at the exhibition, putting technical features, functions and applications into production.

With serious investment and many coordinated activities to be held, this first Vietnam PFA 2019 expects to attract 35,000 visitors and affirm its role as the most prestigious and professional specialized event in the field of processing, packaging, and preserving food and agricultural products in Vietnam.
