The second edition of Asia Agri-Tech Expo and Forum, which will be held in conjunction with Aquaculture Taiwan and Livestock Taiwan Expo and Forum, is slated to take at Taipei World Trade Centre between July 26 and 28, 2018. Organised by UBM Taiwan, the show has proven itself to be the representative trade show in Asia-Pacific region.

The event aims to showcase innovative, eco-friendly and sustainable products and technologies, catering to the demand of expansion in the fields of agriculture, aquaculture and livestock.

Sabine Liu, general manager, UBM Taiwan, said, “According to the United Nations, farmers have to produce 70 per cent more food by 2050 to feed the global population.”

“To increase food productivity and global competitiveness in the food market, today many governments have implemented facility upgrade subsidies to encourage and optimise food production. A new chapter in the Asia-Pacific agriculture industry has begun,” she added.

To take advantage of the global trend, intelligent agriculture, biogas power and animal medicines and vaccines will be featured at this year’s expo. Taiwan has overwhelming advantages in the information technology (IT and bio-technology sectors and has the potential to become the hub of smart agriculture technologies and applications that are used to boost food supply.

In addition, the world veterinary healthcare market was valued at $20 billion in 2017. The rising awareness of animal healthcare in rural areas of the Asia-Pacific region is believed to be able to bring promising profits to the market in future due to the booming perception of food safety. UBM Taiwan expects to achieve over 80 onsite business matchmaking programmes and generate transactions worth about $27 million.

Moreover, the  biogas facility pavilion is another spotlight of the tradeshow. The establishment of biogas power plants saves husbandry farmers in Taiwan between $7,000 and $20,000 on utility costs each year, while receiving feed-in tariffs from the power company.

By showcasing the biogas equipment and technology, UBM Taiwan would also like to promote investment in biomass and biogas energy beyond the Taiwanese farming community and create wider commercial possibilities and expand the swine business in the Asia-Pacific region.

The topical conference, Circular Economy: Biogas Reuse and Production, hosted by Taiwan’s leading technology research and development (R&D) institution, Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) Biogas Power Office, will make its debut at the show.

This year’s essay of the expo will double in space and is expected to see 60 per cent growth in matchmaking revenue. It will be supported by 25 international associations and 18 professional media bodies, and will be serving the exhibitors and buyers with new market trends and business opportunities.
