“Successful launch of HortEx Vietnam, exhibition expected to double in size for next edition.”

The launch of HortEx Vietnam, which took place from 14-16 March 2018 in the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC) in HCMC, has been a great success and participants were very pleased with the quality and quantity of the visitors.

In total more than 110 companies from 20 countries worldwide participated and some 4.500 visitors visited the event. Apart from the Vietnamese visitors the exhibition also welcomed quite a number of visitors from other South-East Asian countries such Cambodia, Thailand, Philippines, Taiwan, but also up to Korea, Australia, China, USA and India.

During the exhibition an extensive seminar program was being organised where experts from various trade associations, ministries, embassies and private companies shared their knowledge on all aspects of the horticultural and floricultural market in Vietnam.

Vietnam is the fastest growing economy of the South-East Asian countries and horticulture and floriculture are one of the most promising sectors of this economy. Given these favourable market circumstances the organisers of HortEx Vietnam aim to establish a solid annual trade show in the coming years that will serve all segments of the Vietnamese horticulture and floriculture sector.

HortEx Vietnam can contribute to the further development of the industry in Vietnam and create a bridge between International and local suppliers of horticultural and floricultural products on one side and the Vietnamese growers and other industry professionals on the other side. The large International and local participation and interest in HortEx Vietnam underlines the potential and development of the Vietnamese horticulture and floriculture industry.

HortEx Vietnam is supported by the Vietnamese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Vietnam, Lam Dong Tourism, Trade and Investment Promotion Center (TIPC), Vietnam Fruit & Vegetable Association (VinaFruit) and the Dalat Flower Association.

At HortEx Vietnam participants will be able to meet key decision-makers, strengthen valuable contacts with customers and partners and explore the potential of an exciting and huge emerging market.

Based on this years’ edition and the favorable market circumstances the organisers expect the 2019 edition to double in size and become one of the most significant events in the region.

The dates for HortEx Vietnam 2019 are set from 13-15 March and the exhibition will once again take place in Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC) in HCMC.

Arie Veldhuizen, Dutch agricultural counsellor to the Netherlands in Vietnam

“Knowledge and awareness key to Vietnamese growth” 

The Vietnamese horticulture industry is upscaling. Better flower and vegetable varieties are being developed and field production is gradually moving towards protected cultivation. The Government has even announced a VND100 trillion (US$4.4 billion) package for developing hi-tech agriculture. It is an unprecedented advantage, but without skilled human resources the sector cannot take full advantage of it. Thus, the demand for knowledge exchange is present and they are therefore looking forward to the upcoming HortEX, that will be held in Vietnam’s capital Ho Chi Minh City next week. This is explained by Mr. Arie Veldhuizen, the Dutch agricultural counsellor to the Netherlands in Vietnam.

Flower and vegetables cultivation
In hectares, the production of fruit and vegetables ranks highest (908.000ha), followed by ornamental crops (34,978 ha), floriculture (22,671.9 ha) and trees and bonsai (12,306.2). When looking at the protected cultivation, Vietnam has many greenhouse productions concentrated around the area of Da Lat, in the Lam DOng Province. In 2017, the cultivation in greenhouses on the highlands in and around Da Lat covered an acreage 3,791 hectares. Flowers are the major crops, but also greenhouse vegetables are being grown. Growers are using low to medium tech plastic greenhouses, and the level of cultivation varies from very simple to medium advanced.

Emerging market
Vietnam, with a population of some 92 million people, is an emerging market and the country‘s exports of Fruits & Vegetables have enjoyed strong growth in the past years, with an average rate of 26.5 per cent a year; from $439 million in 2009 to $3,5 billion in 2017. Furthermore Vietnam has the potential to become one of the world’s largest flower exporters. The sector is expected to show further growth due to strong exports and a strong domestic demand. The Free Trade Agreement between the EU and Vietnam, which will go into effect as of next year, will give an additional boost to the sector.

Upscaling the industry
According to Veldhuizen, the development of technology-based agriculture is essential for agriculture sector of Vietnam to achieve greater value-added for export products, global competitiveness and consistently high quality.

Over the last years, the industry in Vietnam has been and is still being up-scaled.   “The Vietnamese horticulture industry is gradually taking steps moving from traditional open field production to protected cultivation, applying greenhouse technology, precision and automatic irrigation, computerized crop management system. Additionally, better flower and vegetables varieties are being developed by applying hybrid technology as well as post-harvest technology”, says Veldhuizen.

In order to boost skip “the” hi-tech agriculture, the Government even announced a VND100 trillion (US$4.4 billion) package. It is an unprecedented advantage, but the sector will not take full advantage of it without the awareness skilled human resources – in management, in science and technology, and in production.

Awareness and knowledge
The industry develops every year, but there is much more to gain, particularly in the field of chain management. Veldhuizen mentions that much can be improved in post-harvest treatment and cold storage. “Growers can cultivate beautiful flowers, but immediately after the harvesting, the flowers are put in a box and loaded on a truck without any treatment or cold storage. So, at the destination, these flowers are damaged and the shelf life is affected dramatically. And this counts for many products in horti- and agriculture. In order to make a change, access to finance, awareness, knowledge exchange and cooperation not only between farmers but through the whole chain is needed.”

All in all, the human factor, is extremely important in the entire horticultural and agricultural chain and fortunately, according to Veldhuizen, the awareness of improving the chain by starting to cooperate and exchange knowledge with other growers is arising. “The demand for knowledge implementation is present and with Dutch expertise we can support the further growth of the Vietnamese horticultural sector in the years  to come.”

HortEx
From March 14-16, the first edition of the HortEx Vietnam, organized by Nova Exhibitions, will be held in Ho Chi Minh City and according to Veldhuizen, will open doors not only for the Vietnamese grower, but for the Dutch horticultural suppliers as well. “This is the first specialized exhibition and conference for Horticultural and Floricultural Production and Processing Technology in Vietnam. It connects Vietnamese growers with experts from The Netherlands and all over the world, to introduce the new technology, plant materials and products to contribute to high tech agriculture development of the region, especially Vietnam.”

Currently HortEx is host to exhibitors from 19 countries including Belgium, China, Ecuador, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey U.S.A. and Vietnam. In total the organizers expects over 100 companies to participate in the exhibition.


Special year
And for Arie Veldhuizen, the Netherlands and Vietnam,  2018 is a special year. Veldhuizen is in his fourth (final) year of being the Dutch agricultural counsellor to Holland in Vietnam and Thailand. Besides that, 2018 marks the 45 years of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and the Netherlands. This will also be celebrated at the HortEX.

Dalat is the capital of the Lam Dong Province in Vietnam. The city is located 1,500m above sea level on the Langbian Plateau in the southern parts of the Central Highlands region.

Dalat is situated some 300 kilometers north of Ho Chi Minh City. Therefore most growers in Dalat trade their produce in Ho Chi Minh City and mostly have representative offices in Ho Chi Minh City.

This year, HortEx Vietnam has been cooperating with the Lam Dong Tourism, Trade and Investment Promotion Center (TIPC) in order to grant the special status of Honor City to Dalat.

Dalat, with its cool climate, has become a favorable area for growing flowers and fruits & vegetables. In the recent years Dalat has become the main production area in the South of Vietnam. Having recognized this, the Dalat area is attracting more and more foreign investors.

The Lam Dong Tourism, Trade and Investment Promotion Center (TIPC) plays a very important role in connecting the (foreign) investors to local businesses.

With having granted the special status of Honor City to Dalat, the organisers of HortEx Vietnam 2018, work very closely with the Lam Dong Tourism, Trade and Investment Promotion Center (TIPC) in order to attract and promote the exhibition under the targeted visitor groups from Dalat.

“Taiwan Floriculture Exports Association joining HortEx Vietnam 2018 with collective pavilion”

The organizers of HortEx Vietnam, the first International Exhibition and Conference for Horticultural and Floricultural Production and Processing Technology in Vietnam, which is being held from 14-16 March 2018 in Ho Chi Minh City, are pleased to announce the presence of a national pavilion from Taiwan organised by the Taiwan Floriculture Exports Association (TFEA).

The presence of the Taiwan Floriculture Exports Association underlines the potential of the Vietnamese market for Floricultural exporters. During HortEx Vietnam 2018 the Association will host a large number of their members in a collective pavilion.

The Taiwan Floriculture Exports Association is a very active Association with over 50 members. One of the main aims of the Association is to market the Taiwan Flower Industry abroad and therefore the Association attends a number of exhibitions in key markets world-wide.

Additionally the Association is co-ordinating with International economic policies in order to improve the export business as well as other common interests within the Floriculture Industry.

It is estimated that Vietnam consumes approximately 5 billion stems a year.

Flowers play an important role in the Vietnamese (Buddhist) culture. Lunar New Year in February (TET; same date as the Chinese New year), international women’s day (March 8) and various other (religious) celebrations are the basis of domestic flower consumption.

The total area of flower production in Vietnam is some 27 thousand hectares; this is equivalent to that of Spain, which is the 5th largest flower producer in the EU.

Apart from being a large Flower Producer itself the Vietnamese market is also offering great potential to exporters of Flowers and Plants as consumers demand higher quality and wider assortment because of an increasing middle class and higher income per capita.

Currently the exhibition is host to exhibitors from 15 countries including Belgium, China, Ecuador, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Malaysia, Netherlands, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, U.S.A. and Vietnam.

In total the organizers expect over 100 companies to participate in the exhibition.

The exhibition is supported by Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Vietnam, Lam Dong Tourism, Trade and Investment Promotion Center (TIPC), Vietnam Fruit & Vegetable Association (VinaFruit) and the Dalat Flower Association.

Horticulture and Floriculture are one of the most promising sectors of the Vietnamese economy and HortEx Vietnam aims to serve all segments of this fast growing and promising industry with a targeted trade show.

Companies who are potentially interested are advised to contact the organisers shortly as available space is limited.
