The International Agriculture Exhibition opened in Ho Chi Minh City on November 9 with 750 foreign and domestic agricultural companies and co-operatives taking part.

The six-day AgroViet 2012 will focus on creating and developing a safe and stable agriculture sector that uses high technologies.

Participants will exhibit their agriculture, forestry, and aquaculture products as well as machinery and technologies used for processing fresh foods and other farm produces.

A number of conferences on the agricultural sector in Vietnam's southern provinces and production of organic vegetables will be organised on the sidelines.

It is expected to provide farmers with a chance to learn about new technologies and their use to improve quality, especially at a time when many markets have stringent import standards for agricultural and forestry products.-VNA
