Aquaculture for all

Denmark signs up for Expo

The Danish fish industry will be represented at VietFish Expo 2007 - the Vietnam International Fisheries Fair & Exhibition.

Held from 12-14 June, at the Ho Chi Minh City International Exhibition and Conventions Center, Tan Binh District, it will showcase seafood, processing equipment, transport services, and consulting services for the industry.

Some 250 stands promoting over 100 companies, including many from Singapore, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Japan, Norway and China, are expected to attract 50,000 visitors including many European businesses, all seeking global exposure.

Fisheries officials are hoping on Vietfish as a catalyst to help the industry achieve its seafood export target of US$3.75 billion – a year-on-year jump of 7.1 percent.

The organiser of the fair since 1999, the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP), will open a two-day seminar on sustainable fish farming in cooperation with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization on June 13 – 14.
