Aquaculture for all

New Dimension For Aquaculture In Vietnam

VIET NAM - The ILDEX Viet Nam Aquaculture Conference 2010 will discuss how Viet Nam can move towards sustainable aquaculture. The industry forum will take place on 25 March, 2010, in in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam.

Viet Nam’s aquaculture industry is one of the largest and most rapidly growing aquaculture industries in the world. The country exports billions of dollars of aquatic products annually; especially pangasius and shrimp. The industry is, however, facing critical challenges to its leading status in the world market. The Vietnamese aquaculture industry, therefore, urgently needs to enhance itself. One way to do this is to promote permanent sustainability; another is to ensure food safety and thereby maintain customer trust.

ILDEX Vietnam Aquaculture Conference 2010 is a forum where leading aquaculture experts from around the region share views and visions on global aquaculture practices and trends. Pearls of wisdom from the experts should form the basis of a plan to enable the Vietnamese aquaculture industry to continue to thrive. Indeed, the ILDEX conference will prove a superb way for the Indochina’s aquaculture industry to discover slightly new goals and practices.

ILDEX Vietnam Aquaculture Conference 2010 will focus on three major issues: sustainability and certification; innovations in culture technology; and feed management & development.

“We believe that a one-day conference offers a great starting point for the industry to learn more about critical factors and technical issues that must be understood and challenged head on. With luck, this should eventually translate into securing a brighter future for the entire industry,” said Mr Sirapat Kettarn, Managing Director, SPOTMARK, the conference secretariat.

“Better still, ILDEX Aquaculture Conference 2010 will be co-located with ILDEX Vietnam 2010. Participation in this virtually must-attend educational and networking forum means attendees can discover aquaculture technology and business solutions for their own operations.”

ILDEX Vietnam 2010 is Vietnam’s leading International Livestock, Dairy, Meat processing and Aquaculture Exhibition. The show is organised by N.C.C. Exhibition Organiser Co., Ltd. (NEO) and takes place between the 25th to 27th of March 2010 at The New Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre (SECC), Phu My Hung, HCMC in Vietnam. Usually famed for its strong (land) animal emphasis, the show is now expanding to highlight aquaculture. The aim is to offer total solutions for Vietnam’s entire food chain by capitalising on NEO’s strong international network plus its partnership with VNU Exhibition Europe.

“Together with VNU Exhibition Europe, we can bring in international technology to satisfy local needs ranging from livestock, to dairy, to meat-processing and finally to aquaculture,” said Ms Ladda Mongkolchaivivat, general manager, N.C.C. Exhibition Organiser Co., Ltd.

Ms Mongkolchaivivat added that “the ILDEX Vietnam Aquaculture Conference 2010 programme has been carefully designed to ensure long-term benefits for the industry as a whole. And though the programme is designed to garner mostly international perspectives, numerous local concerns are to be looked into and discussed for local benefit. Many thanks to our local partner Minh Vi Exhibition and Advertising Services (VEAS), the Department of Livestock Production, and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Vietnam (MARD) for their cooperation and support.”
