26/09/2016: Vietnam's aquaculture takes the spotlight at Aquaculture 2016

UBM Asia formally announces the launch of Aquaculture Vietnam 2016 Conference, an international aquaculture conference which will be held in conjunction with VIETSTOCK 2016 Expo & Forum.

With the theme "Sustainable Aquaculture in Practice", AquacultureVietnam 2016 Conference is hosted by Directorate of Fisheries of Vietnam (DFish), supported by, Vietnam Fisheries Society (VINAFIS), InternationalCollaborating Centre for Aquaculture and Fisheries Sustainability (ICAFIS), and the UK-based Aquaculture without Frontiers.

Aquaculture Vietnam 2016 is slated on October 20, 2016 at the Conference Hall Level 2 of Saigon Exhibition Convention Centre (SECC) where a series of pertinent and timely discussions will be led by top industry individuals such as Mr Cliff Spencer, chairman of Aquaculture without Frontiers, VINAFIS president Dr Nguyen Viet Thang and Roger Gilbert, chairman of International Aquafeed.

Vietnam ranks fourth in global aquaculture production and among the powerhouse in Asia where the region raked 88.91 percent of the world aquaculture output in 2014.

According to Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers, the country's annual aquaculture exports are valued at US$7 billion to US$8 billion.

But diseases, lack of technology and other issues have somewhat weakened Vietnam's competitive edge in the global aquaculture trade. Thus, the broad scope of Aquaculture Vietnam 2016 is expected to address this challenge, says Ms Rungphech (Rose) Chitanuwat, Business Director of UBM Asia Manager:

"If we look at Vietnam's long coast and good river systems, Vietnam can achieve more in aquaculture if we know how to take advantage of that strength and to do that, we should update our production technologies as well as our knowledge and Aquaculture Vietnam 2016 conference should be able to provide all of that."

The economic significance of Vietnam's aquaculture industry plus its merging with VIETSTOCK 2016 Expo & Forum, which will take place on October 19-21, 2016 at SECC makes Aquaculture Vietnam 2016 Conference truly a worthwhile event.

The conference and exhibition are free of charge for all livestock members, for re-registration, click HERE.
