Impressive attendance makes Ildex Myanmar a success

IldexILDEX Myanmar 2012 was a successful first event in Myanmar for VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific (VNUE AP)

The event had an impressive attendance that included overseas visitors from countries such as China, India, Germany, Singapore, Korea and Thailand. The event was well attended by distributors, wholesalers, and end-users. Its opening ceremony included welcoming speeches from the representatives of the Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries of Myanmar, Myanmar Fisheries and Livestock Federation, Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

According to the events organisers ihe economic development of the livestock and fishery sector is expected to experience rapid growth over the new few years inline with a fresh wave of economic reforms in the rapidly changing country and the government’s aspired goal to triple its per capita GDP in five years.

The government estimates Myanmar’s economic growth is will be around 7.7 per cent a year, faster than the IMF or the Asian Development Bank’s estimates, which are closer to 6 per cent a year. The high goal reflects the government’s challenge to improve the lives of Myanmar’s 60 million citizens, who are among the poorest in Asia with a per capital GDP of around US$1,300, the company said in a press release.

Against this backdrop, the event was provided a platform for the livestock and fisheries industries in that country and was well supported by the local livestock and fisheries federations.

Commenting on the launch of ILDEX Myanmar 2012, General Manager, VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific, Ladda Mongkolchaivivat said, “ILDEX, the international livestock, dairy, meat processing, and aquaculture exhibition, has gained an international reputation as a show that brings the international expertise to satisfy local needs. ILDEX has it presence in several agricultural-booming countries in Asia including Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and India.
